A bit fed up today. Daisys been having green poo's off and on for the past week. I've been trying to keep her on the same boob to get more hindmilk, but I've always had trouble with her coming on and off the breast. She gets frustrated when my milk slows so I normally try to swop her on to the other boob, but I can't do that if I want to keep her on the same boob so she gets the hindmilk!!!!
Finding it really frustrating, as is Daisy!

Why not after you have finished the feeding, go back to the orignal breast on the next feed? so she gets hind milk that way.

Yes I've been trying to put her back on the boob that she has at the end of the previous feed. Its greeny yellow at the moment. And shes pooing aaallllllllll the time, whereas normally she goes at the most twice a day. She must be doing at least 6 poo's a day!
Kay, she's not particularly snuffly at the moment, but you also asked if she is drooling alot, which she is. Why could this cause green poo? I'm intregued. (sp?)

yup, drool will cause green poo. so will a virus.
If poo is not frothy ans smelling acidy its probably not hindmilk inbalance. does she have sore bum to go with those poops?

http://www.mother-2-mother.com/cc-baby-A.htm#GreenStools

The occasional green stool is not unusual in the breastfed baby. Consistently green stools, however, are not normal for the breastfed baby. Most doctors don't seem to recognize this as a potential problem because they often define "normal stool" as that of the formula-fed infant. Baby's stool can be a wide variety of colors and textures , and not all of these are cause for concern. It is helpful to know what is normal for the bf baby as well.

Consistently green stools in the breastfed baby can indicate:

  • an imbalance of foremilk/hindmilk, often resulting in frothy green stools.
  • a sensitivity to something in the mother's diet, such as cow's milk products.
  • a sign that baby has an illness. Babies with an intestinal virus or even a simple cold will sometimes have green, mucusy stools. Teething can also bring about green stools due to increased saliva (can also cause tummy upset)
  • a lot of green vegetables or something with green food coloring in mom's diet.
  • If baby has started solids, that could also account for the change in color (this is normal with the change in diet).

I don't know what to think is causing it, she is too young to be teething isnt she? Ben was 9 months before he had a tooth.
She poo'd today while she'd got no nappy on (having nappy free time due to being sore) and it was almost water consistency.
