pooping green...

the 3 mo old I sit for is bf'd and she always poops green. I nursed my son for 16 mos, and to my understanding, green poop= gas. She does cry alot, and Ive asked mom if she's tried gas drops and she said no.
She's using frozen bm in her bottles so she doesnt remember back to Nov. what she ate. lol But she said the same thing of when she's nursing, she has alot of green poops. ANy ideas? Remedies?

My ds gets green poo when I eat dairy. It can be a sign of dairy allergy!

Re: pooping green...

IIRC, when you're pumping and bottle-feeding, it's not uncommon to have a lot of foremilk in the bottle as opposed to hindmilk, kwim? The hindmilk is the white creamy stuff on the top, the foremilk is the stuff that looks like skim on the bottom. How much of each is there? Usually mama will pump for 5 minutes, get an ounce, go back later and do it again, right? So the bottle has mainly foremilk, which will cause green poops.

As long as baby's gaining, not gassy or cranky, all is good, and maybe mom can have longer pumping sessions in one go.

green poo can also be caused by iron in moms vitamins.

Re: pooping green...

the mom pumped this milk in November. She gives me 5 bottles w/ 3 oz each. IMO I dont think I see any 'skim milk' looking stuff in there, which Ive mentioned to her before.
When she nurses, she said that she nurses for about 30 mins, so I am sure that by nursing that long at home, she wouldnt have green poo, kwim? But she said she does, and it happens alot at night.
As far as a dairy allergy goes, what would be in the dairy that would make her allergic? There's more lactose in breastmilk than there is in store bought milk. Is there something else that is in there that makes them allergic?

If she was gassy that would mean she's not getting enough hindmilk right, and too much foremilk?

Huh. I'm not sure about what and all has been said.... but in my experience if I eat brussel sprouts or broccoli (or some other "very green" green veg) DS has green poops...

Re: pooping green...

I wouldn't at all be surprised if she was getting it from the bottles (foremilk, hindmilk thing) or the flow of the bottles. Also, dairy caused major green poop in my dd until around 5 months old. Now she tolerates me having a bit of cheese, thank goodness!
