Answer: Dear This happens when there is an improper mixing of foremilk and hindmilk. Foremilk (milk which comes out first) has a low-fat constitution and is rich in lactose. Hindmilk (comes out after foremilk), on the other hand, is rich in fat. Together, they form a perfect blend that is required for the baby’s diet. However, when there is an abundance of foremilk, the baby is full before she can get to the hindmilk. This causes digestive problems as there may not be enough lactase to break down the lactose leading to a green coloured stool.

Question: My 4 months old baby is formula fed and his poop color some times dark green and some times yellow
Nothing to worry about, its common in babies. You 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 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.
Please see a Doctor if baby shows discomfort.

Answer: Consistently green stools in the breastfed baby can indicate an imbalance of foremilk/hindmilk, often resulting in frothygreen stools. So make your baby take feed for long. Foremilk is the starting flow of bf and hindmilk is the end flow.vith are equally important for baby.
If your baby is on iron supplements as suggested by your pediatrician, his/her poop can be dark green in color. It is the side effect due to the result of unabsorbed iron by the baby’s body.
