Poop??

We have our first ped appt at 2, but her last 2 diapers have been green. Is this something that warrents an early call? I was prepared for mustard.
I had a session of the shakes (low blood sugar?) after her last feed, and 2 hours later feel just crappy in general. I mention my health b/c she is EBF.

Re: Poop??

  • We had a spell of green poo for a day or two and cleared up and back to mustard color.
  • Color is less of a concern than consistency. Big things to look out for are mucus and blood in dirty diapers. As PP said, color may change with diet

  • I was also worried about color, and just asked ped at our weight check visit. Some resouces said it should only be yellow and others said green was o.k.- just as long as it's not white, bloody, black.
    Ped said green meant it haf been sitting in his g.I. tract longer than yellow poop.
    I also saw something though related to BFing. It could be a sign of oversupply. I still need to check with a lactation consultant on that.

  • update, apparently there is a lesser know biili verde - in the same family as billirubin- that makes poop green.  nothing to worry about according to the pedi.  thanks all for your responses.
