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
Answer: When the poop is lime green it usually means there is some digestive distress. One reason for green poop is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance. That means baby is not getting enough of the rich creamy milk at the end of a feed and, consequently, getting too much of the liquidy foremilk that is higher in lactose and lower in fat.
When the baby poop is chalky white or gray poop can be a sign that baby is not digesting properly and that his liver is not producing enough bile.call your doctor rught away.
After the first few days of meconium, a tarry black poop could signal bleeding. Call your pediatrician right away.
Hope this helps.
