My 6 week old EBF baby has been having green poop for the last week or so. In addition to being green they are sometimes way smellier and watery than the regular poop.
She goes three hours between feedings and longer at night and aside from getting a little fussy before she poops she's perfectly happy. Should the green poop concern me then?
I've googled and found that many say it's caused by an imbalance of foremilk/hind milk because if oversupply and the recommendation is block feeding. I don't think I have an oversupply but I have been pumping after almost each feeding for a couple of weeks to build a stash. Maybe this increased my supply?
My LO nurses on each side for 25+ minutes at a time. Do they have to work harder for the hind milk and she gets tired?
If I block feed wouldn't the breast I'm not using get engorged? I'm so afraid of mastitis. I always offer both breasts before my baby seems satisfied. Would my baby have enough milk from one breast?
Thank you for your help.
