Should I be concerned about my baby's bright green diarrhea?

I am having bright green diarrhea and have not eaten anything green.

See below: Bile is green in color. As it travels thru the gut it's color is changed, eventually to brown. Greenish color can be the result of intestinal contents not remaining in the gut long enough to turn brown. Any condition that causes diarrhea can cause green stool.

I'm blowing out green snot and have green diarrhea?

Many need to see Dr.: If these occurred just today then you could wait as see how you feel tomorrow. If this has been going on for a while then I suggest that you see your doctor. The color of the nasal discharge is not that important but if you have sinus pain you could have an infection. Color of diarrhea reflect what you have been eating or could be caused by other problems. ...Read more
