Answer: Hello! Green poop can be due to the imbalance between foremilk and hindmilk . Try to feed the baby from one breast only at a time. This should reduce the greenish potty. But if it does not then please consult the doctor, it can be due to infection also. Take care

    Most of the times he feeds on single breast at a time and he does not have any infection also. Thank you. Take care

Question: My baby is two months old..am giving her breast Feeding plus formula milk.. giving her lactogen.. . Today she passes her poop in green colour..am afraid of that..pls can anybody knows the reason.?
Answer: Hello dear, The green poop is nothing to worry about. Breastfed babies' poos naturally vary in colour from greenish-brown  or mustard yellow... formula-fed babies can have dark green poop as well and it can be totally normal. But if your baby is consistently doing explosive green poos, there's often a reason for it:  your baby may be gulping a lot of milk at once. Or sensitive to medication that you're taking, such as antibiotics or iron supplements. He may also be sensitive to any medication he's having, or a vaccination he's just had. Your baby may be reacting to something you’ve eaten. See your doctor if your baby has loose, waterystools for 24 hours, or if diarrhea is accompanied by dehydration, vomiting, fever or blood in stool.
