Q: I am a nursing mother of a 3months baby She sometimes brings green poop what could be the cause because it goes back and comes back 2. What are the signs and symptoms of a bacterial infection in babies? 3. How many times should a 3months baby poop a day? Thank you
A: Thanks for writing in.
In babies, green poo can be due to:
- Baby not nursing sufficiently from one breast before being moved to the other breast. This means that the baby gets more (watery) fore milk than the fattier, nutrient-dense hind milk.
- If baby is bottle-fed, it could be due to the particular formula being used. Try switching to another formula and see if it helps
- Inadequate intestinal flora in breastfed babies
Though this question is about babies, I’ll mention some cause of green poo in children and adults:
- Eating a lot of veggies
