  • How old is she? Does she breastfeed or take formula? If it's formula does it have iron in it?

  • She could possibly be sick. I would just keep an eye on it... if she has very frequent watery stool, not eating well or starts vomiting.. then I would bring her in. Otherwise I wouldn't worry about it

  • Read this article (it helped me a lot): http://www.justmommies.com/articles/baby-poop.shtml
    The reason I asked if it had iron is because babies that get iron in their formula...they poop green sometimes even a tan color...just read the article and you will know why.
