    The only time this has happened with my new babe has been when I had way too much dairy. Ive cut it out since and had no poo variations.

    My first with whom I didn't cut out dairy with had constant variations to normal with bowel movements.

    Do you consume a lot of dairy? Thats the only thing I could think of due to personal experience...

    Hope you get to the bottom of it.

    My baby has green poos too. They smell like his yellow ones so I highly doubt it's an infection and he is otherwise okay. When I eat seafood his poos have mucus though . I figure the mucus is related to the seafood and the greenness of his poo is just normal for him.

    Also there is no such thing as not producing enough hindmilk. It all depends on how much milk your baby is taking from the breast. I don't believe all this stud about wind causing green poo and fore milk causing green poo etc.

    Hey CluckySC

    Didnt your bub gain weight fabulously as a newborn? I really really doubt its lack of hindmilk then.

    Green just means that its moved through the bowel a bit faster than the bacteria in the gut can work on it. Yellow is normal and brown means constipation is settling in.

    If he is happy and gaining weight normally I wouldnt worry.

    My bub had green poo on and off till she started solids at 6.5mths. then it went yellow.

    Yep, and he's now 10kg at 4 months. A happy chubby little thing.

    Thanks so much for your responses all. I have him on a baby acidophilus now so will see if that helps it. Otherwise if he stays settled and is growing well I'll keep an eye on it and not worry

    Could he be teething? If he's drooling too much, and or swallows lot of saliva, this can cause green poos too.

    Just 3 weeks ago, this happened to my 6 month old Dd. 100% BF. Green poos for a week. I had it checked with the doctor just for my comfort. Everything came back normal - no infections and no bacteria.

    After a week, she had less drooling and her poo came back to mustardy yellow again.

    Yes! I hadn't thought of that. I'm having to change bibs every hour as they're soaked with drool. Darn teething
