Color Baby Chapter 3 Months Old Dark Green?
, my child is still 3 months. But when I pooped, it was old green color. Is that dangerous?
Hello Syifa, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
BAB may vary depending on whether your baby is given only breast milk, formula milk, or a mixture of both, and if your baby is older and has been given solid food, the pattern of bowel movements can also be different.
Infants who get breastmilk only have feces with a more varied color than babies who get formula milk. Infants who receive formula milk usually have a more regular bowel pattern and the color of the stool can vary from dark brown, light brown or greenish brown and have a more sticky consistency like peanut butter. Breastfed babies can change their feces depending on the food their mothers eat. The color of the stool can vary from light yellow, dark yellow, greenish yellow, yellow with spots like younger colored seeds. Babies who get early milk (foremilk) more (for example due to excessive production of mother's milk) have feces with a greener color. The consistency of faeces from breastfed babies can also vary, ranging from watery such as diarrhea to stickiness such as pasta.
Dark green stool may be a normal variation of the baby's bowel movements, but can also indicate a number of conditions, including:
baby is teething baby gets iron supplementation baby has milk allergy or is allergic to certain foods eaten by his mother gastrointestinal infections occur in infants If your baby's stool color changes only occur once or twice, there are no other symptoms experienced by the baby , then you have nothing to worry about. If the stool continues to turn green, especially if you see blood in the stool, the baby has diarrhea (the stool is more fluid than usual and the frequency is more frequent than usual), the baby has a fever, the baby is fussy and does not want to drink milk, you should bring your baby see your pediatrician so that you can further evaluate and manage your baby.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
