Dont worry dear. breast fed babies do tend to delay pooing. Reason being breast milk is very nutritious and gets absorbed fully so if there is no waste getting released there wont be any poo. just hv a track how many times she passes urine. If any concern get medical attention.

If you are exclusively breastfeeding and if baby is active and is not ill and gaining weight, then you need not worry. Greenish Motion can be due to- Some Antibiotics given to baby for cold/infection; Infection when baby starts licking during mouthing period (baby try to lick everything he sees); Symptoms of growing first teeth; Sometimes some baby nutrition product like (Bal-Guti) may induce such symptoms; You may simply consult doctor and have your baby's greenish motion tested for any infection in good pathology lab. If report is normal and baby is active, no need to worry.

Foremilk is the initial watery milk which is rich in proteins... Hindmilk is the thick milk that comes later and is rich in fats... if your exclusively breastfeeding and you find ur baby's poop green, that's because the baby is receiving more of the foremilk n the protein is the one which makes it green... this happens if you swift ur breasts quite often while feeding.. that's y doctors suggest to give milk of one breast completely n then move to the other one, even if it is leaking on the other side... if your baby is active n not loosing weight take it easy dear :)

Hello Divya, My Granny says, it is happen when a baby's mom does not have regular routine of eating. So try to follow the timing of eating, drink at least 3 lit water in a day. Everything will be ok.

it is completely normal don't worry. if the poop is black or white then please consult dr. other than that there is nothing to worry about. even if the baby is exclusive on bf , it depends on mom's diet what she had.

when my baby was on exclusive bread feeding she had this greenish poo problem. when I consulted my paediatrician he said if baby is active and not loosing the weight, then it is normal. when I started solids for her the poo became normal.. once consult with your pediatrician for confirmation.

one thing is that u shdn be stressed while feeding which can also be one of the causes for green poop. be relaxed while feeding.. also get the medical help if the condition persists more than 5 days.

Divya gradual change is better than total change. consult your pediatrician. I think baby is reacting to a total change in diet. pediatrician might suggest a mix of both. plus if stools r slimy and very often, it might mean that baby has an infection.

how old is your baby. generally green motion is a sign of tummy upset. if he is started on top feed, it means that's something is not agreeing with his stomach.
