Thread: baby poop has bubbles

    Default baby poop has bubbles

    Hi,
    My baby has bubbles in her poop. She is 3 weeks old, breast fed only and her poo is greenish. I am more concerned about the bubbles. She seems cranky often and does not want to sleep very much. Is this normal? Any advice is welcome.
    Thanks, E.

    Hi and

    Congrats on the birth of your daughter! Sounds like it could be a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance. Here is a link on baby poo. What you can do is let your baby empty one breast first so that she will get the fatty hindmilk before offering the 2nd breast.

    HTH!

    I was going to suggest the same thing. Here is some more information about foremilk and hindmilk, and why it's important that baby gets a good balance of both.

    This could alo be related to oversuply issues.
