Question: Hii... My baby girl s 4 months old... Her poop s Green color since 10 days.. Is it normal.. She s both breast fed nd bottle fed baby
The green poop is nothing to worry about. Breastfed babies' poos naturally vary in colour from greenish-brown to bright 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. This can hit his tummy too fast, creating air bubbles and explosive green poos. You can try a laid-back feeding position to ease this problem.
Your baby may be 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. As well as having green poos.
Your baby may have an infection, especially if he also has diarrhoea. Breastmilk poo is normally loose, but if you see a change in your baby's poo, take him to see your practice nurse or GP.
To help your baby's tummy stay settled, let him decide when to come off your breast. If you're not sure whether he's finished, let him rest for a few minutes. He may just want to take a little break before feeding again.
Remember, your baby knows how much he needs, and you can't overfeed your baby.
