    Default Poop has a green cast...

    Hello,
    My daughter has had 3 greenish stools in the past 24 hours. I called the nurse and she said it was normal and fine, but she also told me to give my baby formula 2 days after I had delivered her since she hadn't had a BM since I brought her home from the hospital, so I am always leery of her advice. She has a cold from which she is on the upswing from, and she also had her 4 month vaccinations last Thurs, and she had run a temp for a few days and been pretty unhappy (esp. with a cold at the same time), but like I said, she has been feeling much better. Anyway, is this indeed normal for a 19 week old? Oh, and she seems to have been eating okay, even with the cold, so I wouldn't think it is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance.

    Thanks!!!
    Amanda

    My LO had green diarrhea after her 4-month vaccinations. They said it was a normal reaction to the rotavirus vaccine. She had it for a few days and then it gradually disappeared.

    DS also had this happen from 2.5mths onward (and at 8 months occasionally still does) anytime he has a cold or is teething. We have both happening right now (they do tend to go together I suppose), which with his increased intake has made for some fun and frequent dipes!
