Small child, breastfed. Taking lactogen 1, sticky stools with greenish colour, constipation. Treatment options?

My baby is 3 months old. She has just started on lactogen 1, which we give her twice/thrice a day (100 ml). For other feeds she gets breastmilk . Off late I have seen that her stools are sticky and just today I noticed that her stool is greenish in color. Also, the quanitity of stool is less generally and it seems that she is bit constipated as well. She passes motion once almost everyday. These things (the greenish stool and constipation ) when she was exclusively breastfed.

Thanks for your query,
Change in feeding pattern leads to some change in stools as well.
Relax ,just observe her activity,give her lactobaccilus sachet for 2 to 3 days,
In case symptoms persist then you should get her evaluated by pediatrician.

Your baby will be fine
God bless

Thank you for your query,
There will be color variation in infant stool and child passes stool once in a day to once in 3 to 5 days and it is not constipation and nothing to worry.
Is stool is loose watery, foul smelling or associated with any blood and mucus? If yes the stool is abnormal.
While giving lactogen care should be taken in proper feeding technique and hygienic feeding.
Hope i have answered your query.
