baby poop lol

alright mommies this is weird because I should know this. Ok my 1 month olds poop is thick and green. I had to start using formula because my milk dried up. It was the normal breast feeding poop that yellow seedy stuff. Is the green poop normal? It's not watery or anything. It's like pudding or frosting consistency. I am also using Enfamil Gentlelease per his pediatrician because he is very gassy.

  • You're milk just doesn't dry up out of the blue, if you established a supply, it should follow demand. Come over to the breastfeeding moms group if you want some help to figure out what happened and how to fix it! :)

  • Yes, my sons around the same age and his is like that. I was worried too and asked his doctor who said as long as it has consistency then there shouldnt be anything to worry about :)

  • I agree with Leanne that milk usually doesn't just dry up out of nowhere, and if you'd like help getting back to breast, there are plenty of us here who can help, and especially in the Breastfeeding Moms group. Screw whoever gave Leanne a thumbs down, for just offering help. OP, if you'd LIKE help getting back to breast, awesome. If not, disregard this.

  • Yep. Totally fine. Red is the only color to worry about, none or liquid for a couple of days the only variety to worry about.

  • just wanted to let you some PP know that yes you're milk can dry up. I had estbalished a good routine but I stopped making milk. I would skip a feeding, I would feel full and only produce 1oz out of each breast when my DS is already at 5 weeks eating 6-8oz at a time. I saw a woman that specializes in lactation at my OB's office and she confirmed it. I am still producing a little milk but not enough. I maybe get an ounce a day now. I am still trying to nurse and also pumping with no luck. I am also using everything in the book, fenugreek, oatmeal, mothers milk tea...nothin. sometimes that just happens. My mother, grandmother and great grandmother did the same thing.
