Blood not normal: Bloody stools are not normal and should be evaluated by your doctor. Bright green poop may be caused by infection, excessive bilirubin, diet, or dyes in food. My son worried me when he had the most beautiful sea-foam green poop as a baby. We found out it was from his cousin's popcorn in the school colors-- blue and yellow. Regardless, you should see your doctor for an evaluation of the blood.

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.
