Baby passing dark green stools with white flecks. Has solids in the morning and breastfed during nights. Solution?

Hi there, my 8 month old baby had a poo today that was dark green (normal) but it had white flecks in it. The best description i have is that it looks like it had litltle flecks of feta cheese or little bits of white paper. It was also a bit firmer than usual but nothing major. She is on solids and formula during the day and breast fed at night and first thing.

Thanks for your query.

you need not to worry,give plenty of fluids,coconut water,mashed banana,boiled potato..curd.
you can also give lactobacillus sache for 2 to 3 days,
change in character of stool is related to change in diet.
watch her activity,and frequency and nature of stool passed.
Your baby will be fine,
God bless
