Save one to show to your hv so they can advise you. I seem to think that dark green poo is a sign of wind trapped in their tummy...xxx

Is he on breast milk? Kyra sometimes has green poo and this is normal for breastfed babies. Normally it's dark mustard yellow

hi sando, did they do a stool sample test to find out?

Hi sara,

really sorry but can't remember if they put him on any special milk while waiting for results? If they did, chloe's poo is now green (tho multi coloured these days from solids!) from being on special milk - really stinks too!

Sure he is fine, but if really concerned, speak to someone!

yeah they took a poo sample and bloods... they havent confirmed but he is so much happier, normal poos, less colicing, happier baby in general, because he was bleeding they didnt wait for results before trying him on nutrimigen..

still havent got results will be monday now, doc said the poo sample will confirm 100%, i dont know what to do if he isnt cos then what is causing all this?? was talking to a lady in chemist and she said to put him on sma lf, and if it works they will prescribe it, but if it comes back he isnt intolerant i cant see how they will?? The nutrigrem (sp) what is it for? what intolerances?? can you buy it without prescription??

hi, Nathan has dark green poo sometimes. It does always go hand in hand with when he's being a bit miserable too. I thought it was to do with teething as he also has red cheeks and excessive dribble (always dribbles a lot) at the same time.
Think I might call my hv on Monday now to check though.
