Maybe: BF infants can poop a small amount every feed or a diaper overflow once a week. The color represents the time spent moving through the digestive system. The colorizing agent is the intense green bile added in process which changes through yellows to browns by germ metabolism on the debris in the gut.Mucous is not a common feature. Bring a stool to babies doc to evaluate.
