Question Newborn EBF poop turning GREEN on cloth diapers?

My LO's ebf poop is bright yellowish-orange when it is fresh but I notice after a day or two when I put her diapers in the wash, the poop has turned a very kermit the frog green color! Is this normal? Has anyone else noticed newborn EBF poop doing this? It's always consistently doing this.

Yeah, it always washes out I just wondered if it was normal to do that. I've been told that green poop means baby isn't getting enough milk and I've been having supply issues and she has been having weight gain issues, so I was wondering I guess if it turning green was maybe indicative of these other issues or if it normally does that.

My babies' poop did/does the same. No problems with supply or weight gain here. I think with those issues (particularly too much fore-milk & not enough hind-milk) the poop actually comes out green right away.
