Breastfed. Green, watery, stringy stools. Why?

I have a 3 week old son and he is exclusively breast fed for the past few weeks he has has some green watery stringy stools and I am not sure what is happening, my doctor that I saw mentioned that I am producing a lot of milk is it too much foremilk? Also he developed arcady on his bum when he has these green poops. He is gaining weight good no concerns there. But he eats every hour or so during the day..

welcome to hcm
thanks for the query
your baby is all most need to worry
just empty one breast completely before going to feed other side. so that your baby will get both fore milk and hind milk
breast feed should be on demand.if you follow the above trick then these problems will be sorted out
if he is urinating 5 to 6 times per day then no need to worry
hope this information will be helpful to you
take care
