Stools: this can be normal, for breast fed infants, they can have a small bowel movement after each feeding, as long as it has some solids in it & not to watery or large soon she will start sold food & that might bind her stools, if she is growing & gaining weight that a very good sign. it is always good to check with her pediatrician. good luck.

Sounds normal: Breast fed babies can have a smear every feeding or a loose stool once a week.Color is derived from bile added during digestion that starts out dark green and gradually changes over time. This all sounds pretty normal.
