Answer: Hi Dear! Its normal fr a 1 month 7 days old to poop in intervals, because breastmilk gets digested fully and no excretion happens, hence its completely normal now green poop is also normal its due to few reasons like, *Hind milk and fore milk imbalance- please ensure to feed the breastmilk to baby from both the breasts to avoid the imbalance. *If baby has cold? *If baby is on Iron drops *The green can be due to the iron content of the formula milk you are offering. * Infection which can cause from the bottle or nipple if not washed properly. And due to hard stomach if baby is cranky, Please give a nice massage around naval clock and anti clock wise. Give enough tummy time Make his legs exercise in by cycle motion. Burp the baby well after feed A nice steam bath also ease the pain. Hing mixed with lil ghee. Apply around navel. Please try to distract the baby, a lot of skin to skin also helps a lot. Good luck & hope baby feels better soon..
