  • Green poop in little babies usually means diahrea. As long as he's still drinking and keeping most of it down, I wouldn't rush to the ER, but I would definitely get him in to see his pedi tomorrow. Good luck. It's awful when wee ones are's like the world's meanest guessing game for mothers.

  • Call your pediatrician first thing in the morning. They may have a nurse or dr on call that you can call now though to make you feel better. If at any time you feel it becomes an emergency then go to the ER of course, especially with one so tiny.

  • Green poop is still normal. Diarrhea is watery poop that happens at least 2-3 times in 24 hours. Babies poop will change color depending on the diet, and plus he's likely got mucous in there too. There's no need to worry unless he isn't keeping "food" down (breastmilk or formula) for several hours and starts showing signs of dehydration. Sounds like he has a cold, or possibly a sinus infection but that's pretty unlikely. As the mother of a chronically ill child, I definitely wouldn't worry at this point. Just keep him hydrated.
