Its common in babies pls dont worry, You will only worry when the poop is black, white or red, Or there is no poop even after 10 days.
If the frequency of green potty in a day increases or even if loosies are occuring, then chances of stomach infection can be there. My paed said that since everything goes into baby's mouth, sometimes green potty occurs.
However please check the following;
*If any new food is introduced which is green.
*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.
* Hind milk and fore milk imbalance- please ensure to feed the baby from both the breasts to avoid the imbalance.
* Infection which can cause from the bottle or nipple if not washed properly.
Please see a Doctor if baby shows discomfort.
