is there any rough guide to color-coding of stools? i remember when we just started with bfing i was told that mustard-yellow was good and green meant too much foremilk and seedy stool indicated that baby was getting fat in the hindmilk.
my dd (10.5 months) has had pale green, (at first lime-green) stools, kind of frequent, for the past 1 -1.5 days. we just flew from india to maryland and it started en route.
now in a baby who takes some solids while continuing to nurse a lot, anyone know what lime-green stools mean? does it mean that she is not digesting fats? could she suddenly be again getting "too much foremilk" as far as unusual items in her diet - she did suddenly grab spiced food from my plate which i went ahead and let her have since she wanted it so much. could one helping of spiced food have upset her digestive system? they also said in the flight that flying can upset the digestive system. i can see in the stools that she hasn't really digested the solids like tomatoes or banana that she ate. anyway i am trying to keep the solids to a minimum till i see a nice yellow-brown stool (not easy since dd loves food).
hope someone out there has some insight to offer. as various scenarios are running through my mind ...
