Question:My baby is 5 n half month old n today his poop is like running dark green colour and he did 3 times..what can be the reason ?
Answer: Hello! There are majorly 3 reasons for baby to pass green stool.
First, imbalance in foremilk and hindmilk. When baby takes only foremilk he is likely to pass green stool. For this feed baby for minimum of 20mins each breast. This way he ll get hindmilk.
Second, When baby has any bacterial or viral infection like cold and cough. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. And you can also use mustard garlic ajwain oil to massage his body.
Third, It could be due to stomach infection. In this case get stool test done.
