clovers poop turned yellow and seedy but now there seems to be either green stringy looking bits mixed in or its just green stringy with a few seedy bits.
i seem to have a lot of milk, today i soaked through a breast pad my bra and soaked my shirt while having a short nap after feeding for 35 minutes. i read something about too much foremilk or something...anyone have anything similar happen?

DDCC to say that yes it likely has to do with not enough hind milk. If it is mucousy looking though, it could be a dairy intolerance. If it is just a funky green color and not mucousy then try expressing some milk into a towel after let down first and then getting her to latch on?

I had the green poops (and soaked shirts) with Alice. Block nursing her helped a ton with that. With this kiddo I block nurse occasionally, but she can take both sides and have her poops stay yellow... my supply is a lot calmer though, probably because she doesn't nurse as much/often overall. Lansinoh super absorbent disposable breast pads were the only pads that worked and I sometimes had to double up on them while sleeping.
