Answer: Hey, There are majorly 3 reasons for baby to pass green stool. First, imbalance in foremilk and hindmilk. When baby takes only foremilk he is likely to pass green stool. For this feed baby for minimum of 20mins each breast. This way he ll get hindmilk. In case of formula milk the incorrect ratio of milk and water cause green poop. Second, When baby has any bacterial or viral infection like cold and cough. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. And you can also use mustard garlic ajwain oil to massage his body. Third, It could be due to stomach infection. In this case get stool test done.

Question: My babe poop dark green color.he s in formula feed and bm..Wt will b reason
Answer: Hi dear. Green stool color is normal due to both formula and breast milk. Formula milk causes greenish poop. But sometimes the baby don't drink breastmilk for long which causes only the watery foremilk intake... make sure you nurse your baby longer from one breast before switching to other to get richer and thicker hindmilk which is full of fats. I hope this helps
