3 months old baby with green pooping?

Normal variation: The main agent adding color to the poo is the material made by the liver called bile. It starts out a dark green and goes thru the yellows to brown depending on the influences of various factors in the intestines. Rapid transit thru the system, as may occur with diarrhea or breast feeding may have a greenish yellow or yellow appearance. The slower, more likely browner.

See below: It can be related to what the child is eating. And, if the stool passes through the intestinal tract quicker, it will be green.
