Answer: Green potty is due to three reasons. First is imbalance between hind milk and fore milk. You need to feed baby both the milk. It is better to feed from one breast for one feed so that baby gets both. As feeding goes on fat percent in milk increases which is needed for babies growth. Second is any viral infection like cold. If baby has Cold,cough or fever potty will be green. Third is stomach infection, which is rare at this stage. If you feel baby showing other symptoms such as fever please consult doctor. Take care
Answer: Hello, I'm happy to help. If stool has visible mucus or green in color it can be a sign of bacterial infections. It also happens if the baby is on more of formula milk. You can consult your pediatrician, so that the doctor would be able to treat this. Not to worry, your baby would be fine. Take care.

Question: Hello.. My baby is 4mnths old. He is popping green colour stools. Is it OK? Using formula milk
Answer: Hi. Hello, Green poop can be due to imbalance in thw breastmilk being fed to baby. If baby gets more of foremilk i.e watery in texture it might cause the baby to get green poop. Make sure you feed your baby for longer on one side before switching sides so baby will get hindmilk as well which is more creamy and has fat in it. Try this and wait for two days the poop should be normal. Sometimes teething also causes green poop because baby try to chew on everything and might get bacterial infection if that is the case try giving coconut water to baby as it has antibacterial and anti fungal properties. If nothing works then please contact your doctor. Hope it helps. P.S. - you can try giving a small pinch of nutmeg powder in your milk to baby at night it also helps in clearing bacteria and any other stomach ailments.
