Poop?

 Ok ladies.  I have a feeling that my little one has a hindmilk/foremilk imbalance.  He seems to be having green poop all the time.  He only poops a couple of times a day and it is always green.  He is  a quick nurser and only goes for 5-10 mins.  He doesn't poop during the day after he has had a bottle or two so I don't know if it would be a different color then or not. He seems to go at night and first thing in the morning.  I have tried expressing milk (by hand) before he eats but it doesn't seem to make a difference.  Maybe I am not expressing much.  Should I be expressing until I let down?  I can't always tell when I let down so I'm not sure if I am expressing enough.  Thoughts?  Help?  Ideas?

Try block nursing instead. One breast all feedings for a three hour period,. the other side all feedings for the next three hours.

You can express as well if you want...block nursing is less work.

 He eats every 2 hours so should I do 4 hour blocks instead of 3?

That works too.  =)
