Baby poops: Many babies have not matured their bowel functions with normal bacterial flora and it depends on breast feeding or formula So day to day the stool colt changes yellow to green to brown soft and usually seedy till maturity

Bile: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue.
