Green watery poo - is it normal?

My 9 week old DS has green watery poo, just wondered if this was common? His poos are very frequent too, after every feed.

He had his injections on Wednesday and the poo turned very turned green on Thursday. Could it be connected to them? He was on strong antibiotics a couple of weeks ago as he has been in hospital but not sure it would be related to that so long after.

Have given the doctor a sample as they were watery but not got the results back. Is ok in himself, doesn't seem poorly.

Just wondered if this was common. He is breastfed by the way.

I think green poo in babies can sometimes have something to do with an imbalance of fore and hindmilk? Please don't take that as correct though as I'm far from sure about it - it just seems to ring a bell Could well be to do with the injections though - it sounds too much of a coincidence otherwise.

no don't tend to feed from both sides unless he is feeding for a long time ie 30 mins or more.

Feeds vary from 10 mins to 30 mins.

Thanks all. Sorry for delay in replying, not managed to log on for days! Poo now yellow again so none the wiser. Will have to wait for results of sample.
