my dd is 2 1/2 weeks old and her poop has just changed color again. first, her poop was dark black, then changed to mustard yellowy and is now a greenish brown. i am breast feeding and expected the color to stay mustard yellow. is the greenish color normal or has this happened to any of you?

Learned something new today..thanks for posting this!

My 1st baby had allergies & I was freaked out when new baby had green stools the other day. Glad to learn it might just be imbalance in foremilk/hindmilk.

This may have been mentioned on that link, but I just had a conversation about this with my midwife yesterday. She said it could also be a sign that you're not drinking enough water.
