Dark green stool
by: Annie

Hi

If your baby is happy, no extra fussing, gassiness, no sleep issues and baby is gaining weight well, then you should not worry.

green runny stools in baby
by: Tracy

Hi Lorena

I'm supposing that your baby is 2 1/2 weeks old? You didn't specify.

The crankiness and green stools are signs of foremilk imbalance.

This is easy to fix, just start feeding baby from only one breast each time he breastfeeds. Alternating breasts with each feeding session.

This will fix any oversupply issues and will help baby get in more of the fattier hindmilk at the end of a feed.

Green and mucoidal poop

Since when my baby started having formula milk her poop became green and there are times that she even have diarrhea.

She poop 5 to 6 times a day. We thought of changing her formula milk but then she stopped having episode of diarrhea. We decided to not change anymore.

But then here it goes again. Shes having diarrhea for 2 days and what made me worried is that in her poop it has mucuos and still greenish. She still passed out stool 7 to 8 times but minimal in amount. What could be the reason?

unusual poop
by: Lyssa

It is common for formula fed babies to have poop that is more genn in colour than exclusively breastfed babies.

It is also not unusual for some babies to have a bad reaction to the formula they are given. Any changes in bowel movements or your baby should be discussed with your child's medical professional to help find a proper diagnosis and solution. You may have to switch your baby to a different brand or type of formula.

green mucus stools since about 3 weeks old

My 4 month old daughter has had consistently green mucus stools since about 3 weeks old.

She used to be extremely gassy but seems to have outgrown most of this.

I have done block feeding on the recommendation of my LC. I have also gone dairy free (although I am sure I have eaten hidden dairy at times).

Her green mucus stools still remain. She can also go from spitting up 2-3 times a day to as much as 30 times a day.

She has ever only eaten from 1 breast each feeding and has only ever nursed for approximately 6 minutes at a time, until last week when she started feeding for about 45 minutes at a time very frequently.

At that time her stools became more liquid and more frequent (with every feeding). Her weight gain has always s been good until this last month where she only gained 8oz.

She is happy and content for the most part. Do I need to worry about the green mucus stools if she is content? Should I continue to block feed and/or cut out dairy???

Please Help!!!

green stool and mucus
by: Tracy

Sounds like a lactose overload to me. You can continue to block feed.

There are many mixed views on whether a mother should avoid certain foods. New research suggests that pregnant and breastfeeding mothers should not avoid any foods unless they have had their baby test positive for a specific food allergy. They say that avoidance on its own can cause an allergy. BUT, my personal opinion is that we as humans are all allergic to cow's milk. I don't allow any dairy in my house. I believe that it causes mucus build up and inflammation in a persons body and contrary to popular belief, it is not a good source of calcium. It has been found to leach the bones of calcium.

since your baby is happy and content, you don't need to worry too much about the green tinge or the mucus.

a maturing gut
by: Tracy

Hi

Frequent stools for breastfed babies are common. The frequency and even the color is not a problem unless your baby is showing signs of increased fussiness or delay in growth. The stools should become less frequent and will most likely change in color and texture between the 4th and 6th month. Your baby's digestive system is still maturing.
