How old is he?

Mine at a few months (can't remember exactly) had green poo. Saw doc who just said don't worry. Next time I took in a nappy to show him - by the time I got it there is was glowing neon! Oh - I see what you mean, he said. He sent off a sample for analysis & it came back neg - probably had had a mild tummy bug but had worked its was through his system. See doc if worried. How long has it been going on?

Are you abroad I take it? Where? (Just to be nosey!) Does he otherwise seem ok? I'd be inclined not to worry if he otherwise seems ok tbh.

Had it off and on for around a month.
We are in Auckland. Have just bought a house here and are too happy.

Ummm ds2 had green pooh for ages- although this was staright after birth can indicate too much sugar in poo I seem to remember very rustily. In his case he had a cord infection and was starving! (Although may be different as it was when he was being totally bfed).

Best to get it checked ....

Hi Britabroad
Is he eating iced cakes from e.g foodtown or pak and Save - the blue ones turn the pooh fluroescent green!!! Thought DS was really sick until worked it out - took about a month of working through foods.
See you this afternoon
