I bottlefed my daughter and until she started eating solids her poo was green all the time. My doctor wasn't concerned.....she said as long as she is pooping that  is the important thing.

I breastfed both my kids and for the first month it was greeny yellow and then turned a yucky browny yellow colour my Drs said it was normal for breast fed babies.

Hi! Although I don't specialize in pediatrics or OB yet, I am a registered nurse so just a couple questions before I can help....Are you breast or bottle feeding? If you are breastfeeding it may be a reaction to something you ate. Or maybe  the formula isn't right for her. Has she been running a temp of any kind? Definately ask the doctor but if she hasn't had a fever and doesn't appear to be in any discomfort then I would say its something you are eating or the formula.

yes depends on if formula or breastfed, if breastfed it could be something your eating too. but do consult with doctor

i totally agree with the to much iron. it can & will constipate you & turn ur poo green. when i first started my prenatals my poo was sooo green i went to the dr. & thats what he told me that it was from alll the iron.

She may be getting too much iron. My daughter was having green poop at 2 months ( when we started her in formula and i started to freak out). A friend told me to try a low iron formula and the green poop went away. I agree with Sharon and talk to a doctor first and see what they say.

The color of bm's in the first weeks are varied and can be scary too. What has your Pediatrician said?? It depends on whether you are breastfeeding, formula and which kind, or both. Does she show any discomfort when having a bm, or appear to be in pain when a day goes by without a bm?? Good luck, and do call the Pedi or talk to the nurse.
