    Default When should you notice a change?

    I realized (or think I have) that I have an oversupply issue and that has caused my breastmilk to have an imbalance. I have tried blockfeeding the past 2 days. When should the poops start to look normal?

    They are green and mucousy. This morning it was still mucousy but had more of a yellow tint with green.

    I think I noticed a bit of a difference around 2-3 days but about a week until everything was "normal". Good luck! You'd think oversupply would be a good thing when so many are struggling with low. It can be just as painful!

    your baby's poops could be green and mucousy with a hint of seedy yellow and this not be an indication of oversupply or an imbalance.

    So his poops have gotten better. They are more yellow, seedy but still have mucus in them at times. Is this ok?

    it can also be from teething and swallowing a lot of drool...

    Would there be any other signs if the mucous is about dairy?
