Question: Hi moms , my baby is 3 months 25 days old she is on bm and fm . From past 4 days she is doing green colour pooty and am not taking any iron or calcium tablets and am having daily 1 cut of spinach to increase the supply of bm from past 1 and half month and am providing both hind milk and fore milk . I want to know y she is passing green clour potty whether i need to consult doctor?
Green poop is often a result of imbalance in hindmilk and foremilk as long as your baby is content and gaining weight there is no reason to bother
The watery milk that comes in first from your breast is called as foremilk it is rich in lactose and nutrients but low on calories while the hind milk comes down approximately 5-10 min later and is thicker and creamier comparatively
And rich in fats that help baby gain weight
Excess of foremilk which is lactose results in green poop in babies
The solution to this would be ensure your baby empties one breast before moving on to the other
At times a overflow of milk may also cause green poop
Question: I m daughter is 5 n half month old she is having green mucousy poop with curd like substance plz help what to do
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.

Answer: Consult your doc. I would suggest not to take horlicks yet. Wait till your baby is more than 6 months old. after that your baby's digestion system will start working more better.
