Ok my son is two weeks old and he was having the yellow seedy bm but now its has turned green and seedy.  I let him nurse as long as he wants I have not changed my diet or take any medicine so is normal for the color change?

 youre talking about poop.. :) its ok, you can say poop here.  BM normally means BreastMilk around here.  i was a bit confused for a second. :)

anyway, green can be in the range of normal.  but it can also indicate a bit of an over supply (extreamly normal at 2 wks, youre still regulating) or it could indicate a sensitivity to something you are eating.  at this point i would let it ride since you state it is still seedy and chalk it up to a bit of over supply.  it will regulate in time.

Yeah, it's fine.  

DD had green poo off and on for awhile.  Sometimes there was mucous and sometimes not.  

I didn't really change my diet at all.  

It evened out on it's own.  If your baby is feeling fine, gaining weight as he should, it might just be green poop.

Normal. Not a problem. Google "Color of the Day" by Dr. Jay Gordon.

Ha! I've seen both! Pumped milk that looks green the next day, and green poop! Both are in the realm of normal!

 It's definitely normal. If you look it up on babycenter they say that it is normal. I wish I still had the article. My son had the same thing and the doctor told me it was completely normal. The thing you should be worried about is blood in the stools and if it comes out solid (shouldn't until he is eating solids). If it comes out in flakes or solids (could mean constipation). It should be kind of like pudding.

That's funny, I tried pumping in the beginning, hated it, but my milk was sometimes the tint of green!  I always wondered why...  I gave up and forgot about it...
