    I don't see why not. Clara's poo come out brown mixed with either green or orange (depending on whether she more recently ate peas/beans or squash/carrots). Sometimes there's both colours mixed in.

    Thank you, my baby's poo is gradually getting more solid, but there have been the odd ones that have been greeny lately. I'm worried that I might be giving her something that isnt agreeing with her... But she does eat avocado alot as well as spinach soup.

    I would have thought so, yes! But greenish poo can also happen when they have a cold.

    My daughter's pediatrician said to wait until 10 months because of the nitrate levels in spinach.
