Baby poo

Hello
My baby is 4 months old and has had dark green poo for the last few weeks. She is only bottle fed and poos once a day. Not too runny or hard. Is there anything to worry about...?
I'm a first time mum and never posted here before. Hope this makes sense.

I'm also a first time mum to a 4 month old bf baby. He poos several times a day and its normally orange during the day and greenish in the evening. I don't know what it's meant to be but hopefully its reassuring for you to hear that your DD isn't the only one with green poos.

Some formulas routinely turn poo green. If your lo is ok in themselves then I am sure there is no issue

Thanks - she seems happy. But you suddenly get these doubts!

Teething can cause green poo I think. Certainly the case for my baby.
Mine also had the green poo in the evenings thing - not sure what the reason is but think it's normal.

Teething and comfort formula give my lo green poo. I think some other normal formulas do as well.

My bub was on SMA and tended to have green poos but if it's worrying you it might be worth asking your HV x
