  • Could be the mucus. That happens sometimes. If you're worried take him in.

  • he probly just swallowed some mucus. either that or coming down with an infection. i heard that if your kids' poop is green they have an infection an ear infection or sinus infection, ect. not sure if that's the same with breastfed babies though. don't remember...

  • Compleyely normal. I nursed my babies exclusively for 11 months and yeah the diaper colors change! No worries mama! You're giving baby the BEST (that liquid GOLD)!!

  • Poop can be ALL kinds of colors and have odd smells and be perfectly normal. Even in breast fed baby's. Id say it's nothing Mom.

  • It's probably nothing but if you are concerned call your doctor and see what they have to say
