My 1 month baby did not do bowel movement for two days and when she do it her stool become dark green she is bottle and breast feeding

Good

Good news! The only stool colors we get really concerned about are red (blood from colon), black (blood from small intestine or stomach), or white (liver is not working well). Colors such as brown, yellow, orange, green, even blue (blue kool-aid or blueberries in older kids and adults) or purple (beets in older kids and adults) can all be normal and usually associated with diet. If your baby has a persistent change in her stool habits, you should contact her physician since this could be a sign of an underlying disorder, but a one-time strange stool that is not red, black or white is usually of no concern.

My niece is a 2 months breast feed baby girl. After each feeding, she's passes stool (watery or liquid form) or sometime bathroom in a excessive way.

Breastfeeding

Baby
Stools can be as often as every time the child eats. They look like French's mustard- liquid and yellow. However, if mom is eating dairy or gluten and the baby is sensitive then they can be more liquid. I generally recommend mom stop all dairy first...these stools may be normal. If stopping dairy improves things then we know the child is sensitive.

Often, when infants do not have a bowel movement for a day or two, when they do have one, it will be a darker color than usual.
