    I could have written this post!!! so will be interested in people's answers. My HV did tell me some babies just have green poo though but was still a bit worried.

    My boy was only formula until we weaned and he always pooed thick and green. I wouldn't worry especially because it took so many days to go. I'm sure it'll get to normal again.

    My LO had a thick pasty green poo a couple of weeks ago (FF and normally runny, seedy, browny yellow in colour) and I mentioned it to the doctor on the 8 week check up and she said that he could have had a little tummy bug

    Could be a tummy bug, teething or too much fore milk from BF? May be linked to your antibiotics and the move to more FF too?

    It is pretty common - if it continues for a week or so, maybe speak to doc or HV?

    My LO is on antibiotics for a blocked gland in his testicle and his poo is a bit greeny - I think it might be the antibiotics passing from you into him causing his tummy a little bit of upset. Louie's bowels are all over the place since he's been on his medicine - he went about 6 times a day on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday then nothing since! Waiting for an explosion now... xxx
