    Default Green Stools (9week old)

    I have an overactive let down with oversupply of foremilk. I have been doing block nursing and it helped the first 2 days but now Ryan is getting green stools again. Does anyone know of any reasons for the green stools other then him not getting enough hindmilk? I am worried because an article mentioned cystic fibrosis and green stools. HELP!!

    As I posted in the other thread of your's, a dairy allergy/sensitivity could be the problem.

    Thank you any advice on how to see if this is true? Do I cut it out completely?

    Our Ped told me green stools could also be due to different things in my diet. Not that I am passing green milk to my DD, but that the different things we eat send out different colors of poop.

    Yellow, green and orange are all normal colors for bf babies. If your lo doesn't seem to have other symptoms, it may just be normal. You could check with your ped just to make sure. I have oald, too, but my ped said that may only account for part of the "greens"
