Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do not worry.
Green color of the stool does indicate only one thing that there is increased bowel motility and nothing more.
So you need not worry regarding this.

I also request you to continue to breast feed your baby till 2 years of age because of the several advantages breast feeding has on the brain growth.

You may contact me with further details on the following URL...........

In such scenario the questions are directly forwarded to me .............. and I can answer your queries regarding your kid online regularly.

Hope this helps.
Take care
