    Default Help! Newborn poo green with bits

    Hi ladies, hoping you can help me. You'd think I'd be an expert on this with bub 3 but I'm unsure.

    History:

    dd1 was mostly formula fed so nothing to compare.

    dd2 was breastfed but had cmpi and had green frothy poos. I went on dairy free diet and tummy/poo issues were corrected after 2 weeks.

    ds1 is 11 days old and the past 2 days he's had some green poos. We have noticed though after the meconium cleared, all his poos had bits in them. But the poo started off mustard and we knew that was ok, but now poo is green. It's definitely not frothy.

    He isn't great at latching onto my biggest boob and probably isn't feeding for as long as what he should. Falls asleep! So does this look like lactose over load from too much foremilk or something else? IMG_1491948347.659524.jpg

    Have you eaten anything Strange or that is to strong for bubs to digest. I'd also go dairy free again and see what happens. I'm diary free with no2 but it's starting to correct itself now after 9 months

    Also maybe express of some of the fore milk so that bubs get to the hind milk faster that could also help

    Hubby cooked a roast a few nights ago and used way too much garlic - I was already thinking maybe it was that?

    Good idea with expressing first, I'll give that a go too.

    Didn't want to have to go dairy free but will try that if none of the above works. Thanks for replying xx

    Is he jaundice? It could be just the jaundice clearing.

    Could be garlic. I always hold off on spices etc for a while that bubs belly can start to digest properly before I hit them up with the foods I love. I know with my first I ate salt n pepper squid and it didn't agree with ds at all either did orange juice.

    Default Help! Newborn poo green with bits

    Random seedy bits were quite normal for my bubs, some days more some less and day to day the colour could be slightly different too. I know as newborns too many legumes, onions & garlic upset their tummies so maybe lay off those for a few days to see what happens before going fully dairy free? Does baby seem happy otherwise?
    With the latching issue can I suggest you get Bub checked for tongue/lip tie? DS had terrible trouble latching, falling asleep during feeds and waking 10 min later wanting more and I passed it off as normal newborn stuff for the first 3 months, turned out he had severe tongue and lip tie - things took a dramatic turn for the better after having them lasered.
    Congratulations on your new baby!
    ETA: the seedy bits are just undigested milk curds.

    Breastmilk poos can go a bit green if they have been exposed to air. Are you checking his nappy as soon as he poos? or finding it later?

    ETA the seedy bits are normal.

    Totally grose but totally normal. Unless they have a fever or are otherwise unwell, dont worry too much about the contents of their nappy.
