    My baby is both BF and FF. He turned one month today and only poos every couple days. Lately i've noticed its been green with small white chunks in it. Is this normal?

    I'm not entirely sure for the case of combo feeding, as I exclusively BF -- but I've been told green poo is completely normal in BFed babies, as long as baby seems okay. Green poo can also be a sign of a tummy ache or wind, if baby is a bit fussy with green poo.

    I've seen white chunks in yellow BFed poo, and been told it's just milk fat that baby didn't need, so passed through baby's system. :flower:

    Is there any fussiness or other problems along with it, or just green poo and LO is fine?

    I know green poo is nothing to worry about, formula fed babies often have green poo due to the iron in the formula. No idea about the white bits though.

    Maybe ask the HV?
