  • Has he eaten anything with purple coloring to it? Purple koolaid, popsicles, prunes, will all come out green in color.

  • How about giving the child water to drink. Cow milk is for baby cows, and humans don't need it. Like many other nutrients, and despite the claims of the dairy industry, plant based calcium is superior to animal based. While cow mild is rich in protein, the kind of protein that is contains is casein, while human milk protein is lactalbumin, with is easily digestible; more the 50% of casein isn’t digested and can cause health problems later in life, like food allergies. Here is some of what the doctors at the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine say:

  • Of course it is diffferent, he has had a change in diet.
    Different stuff in, Different stuff out!
    Sounds normal to me as long as he is not vomiting. If he vomits then give him soy because he may be lactose intolerant!
