I've done the searches on this forum, EC, & BF with the Green Poo question, but I still just don't get it. DS started pooping green 3 days ago, and for the life of me I can't figure it out. His poop is green, like olive green, not like the flourescent green I've been hearing about. If that makes a difference . . .
Since birth, I've nursed him on one side per feeding, unless I feel like the breast is empty and he's still hungry then I'll switch. So I don't think it is the hind/fore milk imbalance.
Dh and I are both sensitive to dairy and I don't eat much of it, and haven't for over a week. In fact, I've racked my brain and cannot think of any new food I've introduced lately. I know the common allergens like soy, shellfish, eggs, etc. Some of these are in my diet but none of them has increased since giving birth. I consume a lot of soy, but peanuts, eggs, shellfish, and dairy are all sparse and like I said I don't know why green poo would start all of the sudden if they never bothered him before.
And no signs of colic either. He's still the same mellow babe he's always been. I've noticed that the past few days he hasn't been sleeping as well. He's fidgety and vocal and nightwakes more often than normal, but he is not gassy or fussier than normal. I have no idea how to piece it all together so I am hoping for suggestions. I keep hearing that if he's not acting up then the green poos might be nothing to worry about, but he's definitely not himself. The difference is so subtle that I wonder if maybe it's just some phase?????????? Anyone been through this or can offer some suggestions???
