My 7 wk old is breastfed and when i changed her diaper her poop was pea soup green. What could it be? Should i take her in to the dr? Is this normal?

Normal !!!!!!: While usually the color is yellow, all of the yellows, oranges, greens, browns are normal colors for breast fed stools. The only colors to worry about are white, red and dark black (although purple with pink polka dots would be strange). Changes in color reflect your daughters maturing GI tract with the ability to change amount of bile in response to your diet. Relax and thanks for breastfeeding. ...Read more

What does it mean when your stool is pea green?

What does it mean when your stool is pea green?

Green stool color: The color of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors.

After wiping with toilet paper following a bowel movement, I found a green pea on the toilet paper, which made me wonder, do we get any benefit from veggies since they're not digested?

After wiping with toilet paper following a bowel movement, I found a green pea on the toilet paper, which made me wonder, do we get any benefit from veggies since they're not digested?

Yes: The structure of CELLULOSE makes it impossible for us to break it down. It is what is called dietary fiber. Certainly it prevents constipation and allows gut movement to work better. Also, cholesterol sticks to it and fiber lowers cholesterol a bit. Furthermore, we don't know why but it is associated with better control of glucose in diabetes.

6 weeks old with possible digestive problems hello I have a 6 week old baby and he has been vomiting every night and during the day as well he sweats a lot he is very gassy and and is very hard to burp sometimes he wont even burp at all his poop is a pea

Vomiting : Vomiting in a six week old infant needs to be evaluated by a doctor promptly. It could be something common such as gastroesophageal reflux disease or it could be something more serious such as pyloric stenosis (a 6 week old boy is the prime age and gender for this). Either way, you should call his doctor and have him seen as soon as possible. Once he has been examined, your doctor will be able to give appropriate suggestions on how to treat him. Good luck! ...Read more
