Poop changes colour really quickly when exposed to air to begin with so that doesn't help. There might be an imbalance with fore and hind as well but you're already doing a lot to combat that anyway. Some babes have more sensitive systems and their poop will not always be the classic mustard.

If I worried every time my girlie had greeny poops, I'd have no hair left. It seems to go in cycles for us but she's gaining fine so no worries here.
I agree-as long as babe is happy I wouldn't worry too much

Here is a good articel by Dr Jay Grodon about poop color and he is a LC as well as a PED and he always says if baby is good , ie: feeding ,happy ,sleeping
peeing ,poping, dont sweat the small stuff. I know sometimes thats hard when your a new Mom!! Sounds like your doing a GREAT job w/ the BFing so far keep it up

One thing I remembered about hindmilk is if I knead/squeeze my breast it will come out better.

I just wanted to say thank you again to all you Mama's that responded. It has given me peace of mind that everything is fine
We will keep going as we are unless I notice any other major changes in his behavior or amount of wet/poopy diapers.
You guys are a great resource for new Mamas!
