    Default Green poop, green poop and more green poop!

    my lo is regularly having green bm's. I know that is an indication of too much foremilk but i don't know how to fix it. I nurse her until she slows down on the one side. I burp her and offer her the same side, but she becomes very angry. She'll cry, bite, or simple show no interest. I've tried breast compressions but there is never a second letdown that i'm aware of. If i offer her the other breast she'll settle down and eat away...any suggestions

    are the poops frothy? Because if it's just the colour, green is one of the "normal" colours. Here is a great link that talks about the rainbow of acceptable poops.

    Great link! My DD has been having combo greenish/yellowish stools and I thought I had a foremilk imbalance again. Reading this article gives me great relief.

    I love this forum!
