Yes baby nursing on both sides each session is linked to "too much foremilk" - but It is more linked to mom following the oft repeated suggestion to have baby nurse 15 minutes (or 10, or 20) on one side and then switching- in other words, the switching is instigated by mom following the clock and/or the instruction to "always" make sure baby has both sides. If baby "finishes " on one side and then wants the other, it is appropriate to offer the other side and unlikely to cause issues. Also, this is only an issue, typically, in the newborn period. Not starting at 3 months. An exception would be if you have over-abundant milk production. Do you think that you do?
So typically, there is nothing at all wrong with your baby nursing on both sides if that is what baby wants. And baby only wanting the second side a short time is normal as well.
If it IS foremilk related, the easiest, simplest fix, usually, is to encourage baby to nurse more often. If baby nurses more often, there is less foremilk "build up" in the breasts. Also, if baby is willing to nurse more often overall, baby may not need both sides both times.
Green, watery poops can mean many things and can even be entirely normal. If you think the fussiness is related, have you ruled out a virus? How long has this been going on?
