Answer: 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.

Question: What does green poop of baby means
Answer: Hi. If the potty is green in colour continously then it means baby is taking more of fore milk(watery milk which comes in the beginning its high in protein but low in fat) and less of hind milk (thick milk which comes at the end, high in fat and protein). It may lead to weight loss, so make sure you feed from one breast throughly and switch breast.
