poop ?

Hey there mommas! DS is 10 weeks old and EBF. The last week I have noticed a change to his poops. Instead of the bright yellow seedy stuff, it's more yellow-brown and sort of a mix b/w watery/mucousy. I don't notice as much "seedy" stuff, but today the "seeds" were really dark, almost like black specks. What could cause the change? I'm guessing eliminating things could be a start. Where should I start?

Oh, I did start drinking some Mother's Milk tea for this last week, but haven't had any in several days. I ran out and just never got more.

Re: poop ?

I had a similar problem with my lo having green stools. It always seemed to happen when I would drink the tea or take more milk plus. I was trying to build a nice freezer stash. When I took them away his poop was normal again. I really think in my case it was causing an oversupply. Maybe yours is something in your diet but it seems weird that it happened right after you starting drinking the tea and you had no problems before with what you were eating.

Re: poop ?

Maybe the tea is giving you more foremilk? Maybe try just nursing on one side per feeding so he gets his dessert?

My DS has dairy issues, and in the process of hammering that out someone commented that foremilk/hindmilk imbalance can mimic a sensitivity to dairy. Since it just started with the tea I would start there.

Does it take some time to adjust after stopping the tea? I haven't had any in several days. I pumped last night for the first time. I was planning on building a small stash for the occasional bottle. Plus, he sleeps about 6-7 hours so I was worried my supply might dip a little.

Re: poop ?

I have heard that herbal supplements (pills, tinctures) can cause green poop, so it makes sense that the tea would as well. As crazy as it seems to me, my SIL (who is a nurse and BF her kids to 2 years) confirmed that some things you eat do make it into your milk.
