Answer: Hello dear, The green poop is nothing to worry about. Breastfed babies' poos naturally vary in colour from greenish-brown  or mustard yellow... formula-fed babies can have dark green poop as well and it can be totally normal. But if your baby is consistently doing explosive green poos, there's often a reason for it: Another reason is, your baby may be gulping a lot of milk at once. Or sensitive to medication that you're taking, such as antibiotics or iron supplements. He may also be sensitive to any medication he's having, or a vaccination he's just had. Your baby may be reacting to something you’ve eaten. As well as having green poos. See your doctor if your baby has loose, waterystools for 24 hours, or if diarrhea is accompanied by dehydration, vomiting, fever or blood in stool. Hope it helped, Take care ur little one....
Answer: Hi! 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 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. Good luck!
Answer: Hello Dis is normal. The potty color changes.The first thing u need to see is are u emptying your breasts wch results in fore and hind milk imbalance wch can cause indigestion in ur baby make sure u feed for 40 minutes. And the baby is 20 minutes on each breast. Time urself. If this is not happening empty ur breasts use a breast pump so u can give ur baby the complete nutrients and benefits from breast milk. If u have introduced formula then the color change can be the reason of the higher iron content in the formula. Its nothing to worry abt. It 'll be fine in 2 3 days.

Answer: Hello dear White baby poop could be a warning sign that your baby is not properly digesting food. A white color may indicate a lack of bile from the liver to digest food. In the first few years, you will experience a full range of “normal” baby poop types that simply indicate your baby is healthfully growing. As small babies immune system is not developed fully so they are facing many stomach problems. U can try following remedies for loose motions : 1. Give ORS to the baby at regular intervals to keep dehydration 2. Breastfeed ur baby as much as possible.
