Hi, I have a stupid question: my dd ,7 weeks, is producing slightly greenish slimy poos for the last 4 days even though she is entirely bf . Could it be something I'm eating, I thought I had quite a healthy diet ... lots of fruit and veg. She seems fine otherwise
my ds got this when I ate oranges. or they say greenish if not getting enough hind milk- but you may find your lo is drinking more foremilk these days from thirst rather than hunger as its so hot. nothing to worry bout I wouldn't think.
Breastfed babies often have green poo even if they are getting enough hind milk. Poo comes in a huge range of colours, and as long as there's nothing else causing you concern, it's nothing to worry about.
I thought green poo was a sign of a lot of fore (watery) milk rather than the richer hind milk. That would make sense over the last few days if the baby has been snacking more and getting more of the fore milk (thhirst quenching), especially because it is hot. Some babies always have greenish poo, others never do.
As WWB says - breast fed poo can have a variety of colours - usually perfectly normal and nothing to worry about, as long as the baby seems fine in every other way.
