    I got this from Dr.Spock's Baby and child care book.


    If the stools are always green,then nothing to worry. If it has changed from recently,then it could be due to indigestion or even a mild intestional infection.If it is loose ,then it definitely is due to intestional infection. Generally speaking,changes in the number and consistency of bowel movements matters more than the colour.

    Dear Vijee,

    Ask you friend not to worry. Sunitha has given you good information. Also if your friend is still breast feeding and she ate things like chocolateor broccoli or something, the stools can be green.

    As long as the stools are not very loose( watery ) and is not smelling really bad , then there is nothing to worry about.

    hi vivbass,
    there is nothing to worry abt the green color stool.its bcoz of cold or cough..mostly babies that small pass green color stool when they have cold or cough and it comes out thru thier stool.not to worry.

    regards,
    zeenat

    hi Zeenat,
    thanx for ur reply,for my friend baby,DR told itz becoz of infection only,also some food that she is having will also cause colour. also for her baby cow's milk will cause allergy,her face will become pink with some spots.
    now the baby is alright:)

    hi vivbass

    I read ur mail n agree to wht zeenat has said, my 5 mnth old daugher all of a sudden strted passing green clr stool,but it was coz of cold.Also if ur friend is b/feeding the baby n she's haid food rich in iron like brinjal,then also the baby may pass green clr stool,nothing to worry unless the stool accompanies with mucuos. Tk cr

    Green poop

    My LO is having green colour poop past 5 days. I talked to his Ped, she said it could be because of something that I ate. He is being exclusively breastfed and no solid foods yet. Anybody has any idea why this is happening and what I can do?
