    I think as they get older their poo goes more greeny. Keep an eye on it - it can sometimes mean a bit of diorreah (sp) on the way. As long as he's still drinking plenty and temp normal I wouldn't worry too much xx

    I think it can also be a sign of colic or a poorly tum. My LO gets green bits when he's had a growth spurt.

    I've known newborn poo to be chicken korma coloured (sorry if thats your fave) to a more greeney colour.

    I agree with vicky....and i think they can end up more green if the formula has more iron in it too like SMA...as i think the its a way of getting rid of the excess iron in the body IYKWIM

    Isnt green poo a sign of an upset tum? Or being constipated. Roman had this a while back and it was due to his milk. We changed him and it went back to being a mustard colour.

    I don't think so. As another said it's common for FF who are given an infant formula high in iron to have green poos.

    Hannah never suffered any kind of upset stomach at all and always had yellow and green poos.
