My 3month old baby boy has been having green stools for more than a month. Occassionally it is yellow, but with green lumps interspersed.
He is formula fed(Enfamil Milk as well as Soy not at the same time) 2 times a day and breast-fed for the remaining.

The Pediatrician says that unless the stools have traces of red in them (blood) or black, not to worry.

Today it was light brown in color.
Any ideas?

  • I have never heard that traces of blood in the stool are NOT a cause for concern. EVerything I have read and been told--and believe me, I have done a TON of research--suggests that it is a problem. I would look into food allergies--primarily dairy allergies. Does your child have any other symptoms? Stuffy nose, gassiness, problems gaining weight, reflux, abdominal pain, etc? Also, my child has always had green poops. Occasionally they're mustard color, but green for the most part. Hers have never had blood in them, but she is being tested for cystic fibrosis. Good luck.
