Yes, your concern is very true.
Green stools are nothing but incompletely formed stools.
You havent mentioned about fever.
In my clinic, I advise stool culture & sensitivity and tilll the reports come, syp. Metronidazole along with zerolac & adequate breast feeding and salt sugar water.
Hope this information is useful to you.
