Re: Please help with stinky green poop
Congratulations on the new baby!
Have you cut out the dairy, all of it, or just cut down on it? There's a lot of hidden dairy in the foods we eat, particularly processed foods. There's whey and milk powder in bread, in cereals, even in things like cold cuts. If you have cut out all dairy, I would keep at it: it can take several weeks for all the dairy protein to leave your system.
My doctor suggested that I cut out dairy and I’ve been doing so for about nine days.
If the problem is a foremilk/hindmilk imbalance, which is usually a result of oversupply, you are addressing it the right way. Seeing a yellowish poop is encouraging, but if you do have oversupply it can take a while to correct the problem, in which case you're probably not going to go right to perfect, mustard-colored poops. You're going to see a lot of green as the problem gets solved.
Yesterday she did have one poop that was more yellow than green, but this morning we’re back to the same old messy green bowel movements and lots of crying passing them.
Nothing in your lists jumps out at me as definitely indicative of either oversupply or dairy intolerance. But the fact that your baby doesn't choke/cough/splutter while nursing, and that you don't see milk streaming out makes me think that if you do have oversupply, this isn't the worst case in the world. I hope that's an encouraging thought!
