EBF baby--green "slimy" poo PIOG

Posted by on Feb. 1, 2013 at 4:04 PM

I'm a FTM so I don't want to call his pedi and overreact for nothing....

my 5 week old is EBF and his poo is usually "mustard and sesemy seeds" as his pedicalls it. his last 2 dipers have been green in color and it seems "slimy" almost. 

no fever, he's still eating and peeing fine, not fussy. no formula or diet change for me.


ideas?

Word of advice in this group. Don't bump posts. You want to be on page 2, with little to no responses.

Green mucus poop could be dairy allergy. I don't know much about it because I haven't had to deal with it while nursing but I know with my DD, whose 2, if she has a lot of dairy her poops look like mucus.

Sorry about the bump but thanks for the advice.

I'm lactose intolerant myself so no milk in is diet.

DD has poop like that when she gets too much foremilk.

Dairy can be hidden in a lot of things. For example, do you eat cookies or bread? Dairy in there.

Green is within the range of normal.  If he's fighting off a cold, that can cause green poop, as can oversupply on your part.  I wouldn't jump straight to dairy if you're just starting to see green now.  Best advice?  Wait and see how it looks over the next couple of days and see how he's acting.

I had too much milk and that happened to me. The baby was getting too much foremilk like another mama said. I ended up nursing on one side a feeding!

 My little ones did that when I wouldn't let them empty my breast completely before switching sides.
