I was like "Well, what the heck do I do now?" LOL! Since they already pretty much do block feed. I think they're fine now, I just was worried for a minute there, LOL.

My LC told me that green poo was a sign that the baby wasn't getting enough hind milk? Dakotah had it a few times as a newborn but not since she started solids...that brought on a whole other issue...ugh

See, that's what I heard too. I also heard that if they have those seed things in their poo they are getting plenty of hindmilk, LOL. Last night's poo (they are infrequent) was green AND contained seeds. *sigh* LOL. All this talk is making me hungry, LOL

Re: How do you feel about green poo?

The seedy stuff means they are getting plenty of fat...but the green usually means low hindmilk...so it's kind of an oxymoron there I bet they are perfectly fine...Like I said earlier, you'll know they aren't getting enough if it turns dark green and solid.

Yeah, the 'seeds' are fat chunks. So those are a good sign. If they're poo is green or greenish, but have the fat chunks in it, then there's no problem. If it's darker green and grassy looking or stringy, then they need more hindmilk.

Just a few FYI links


Dr Gordon's take on poo and from Dr. Sears

One of the many links that discuss green poo's

Generally the seeds are undigested (curded) milk...gotta go so I can't get a link up for that one - sorry!!!

HTH you (or someone else )
