Color of bowels

My almost 3 month old is having bright green bowels (like floresent sp?). hes had some sort of green color bowels for at least a month now, dark and bright. I wasnt concerned until his babysitter (my sisterinlaws mom) suggested I just ask the doctor. He is on formula and hasnt changed his formula. Is this normal?

  • yep, a babies poops can be anywhere from greens, browns, yellows, etc, my cousin, way back when a new mom, fed her son beets and he pooped purple and she freaked out LOL its a running joke in our family. When babies pooped daily or multiple times a day that is normal, when they switch to once a day to once a week that becomes a new normal. How your baby processes his/her food, that is normal as well, things are changing in our little people. But if it still bothers you, ask your doctor. Good Luck
