DS has had green poop the past two days. It is not frothy as I heard it can be, but is the same consistency as usual just darker green. My mom said all four of us had green poo and it’s normal, usually just what you ate. I read online about foremilk/hindmilk imbalance so I am trying to feed him on one side each feeding so he gets the hindmilk. He was very gassy and fussy last night and tends to be gassy, so not sure if this has anything to do with it. They mention so many foods, how am I supposed to know what to cut out and what the culprit was?! I also really hope it’s not dairy, because I love dairy! I didn’t eat any dairy today and he still had 2 poos that were green. Any advice? Thanks!

Occasional green poo is totally normal & nothing to worry about.. Frothy is generally associated with the fore/hind milk imbalance and that’s easily fixed. I have to do block feeding because of slight over production & if I switch breast each feeding she never really gets hind milk (which also causes her to want to eat more since foremilk isn’t as fatty)
Dirty Delete has a dairy protein sensitivity do I’ve had to cut out dairy 🙁 its been killer considering I drink more milk than I breathe air but it’s made a huge difference! Dirty Delete had a number of symptoms though, not just the grassiness & mucousy (different than frothy) poo. If you suspect a food allergy dairy is the place to start & it takes about 10 days to see a diffrence for a slight sensitivity because it has to clear out of your system & then baby’s system. It’s hard but it has already gotten easier & a happy Penelope has been worth it 🙂

Green poo is normal. Dirty Delete is formula fed and supplemented with breastmilk while I try to re-lactate and she has them with breastmilk and with formula.
Gassiness and fussing could also be from him not being burped well enough. Try the tummy drops or gripe water. We had this issue with our munchkin for the first few weeks.
