Green Poop

Posted by on Aug. 17, 2011 at 12:01 AM

Let me preface with: I know what causes green poop - too much foremilk or reaction to something I ate. My daughter had horrible gas and green poop at a couple weeks old and that's how we found out I had an oversupply and she was getting too much foremilk. Solved that problem, and she's had lovely yellow, seedy poop ever since.

HOWEVER, she's had green poop for the last three nights ONLY at the diaper change right before bed. My diet hasn't changed and her foremilk/hindmilk balance is just fine (she only eats from one boob).

Thoughts? I'm not concerned because she doesn't seem gassy or upset, I'm just curious if anyone has experienced this or knew what was up.

I've heard teething can cause green poo. The thought is that excess saliva from teething changes the balance of the gut which changes the poo.

Whether it's teething or not....green is normal.

I've never put that much thought into it. I eat, I feed baby, the end. LOL, IDK.

I agree with Bethbeth that teething could be the culprit and that's why you only see it at that last one before bed. :)

Eh I just know that green poop comes with an upset stomach.

Sorry

Have you eaten something new? I know you said your diet hasn't changed, but maybe its new to her. Or she is reacting to something you've eaten. Its hard to say really. Hope you figure it out.
