What causes dark green stool in an infant?
No need to worry.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
The dark green stool that the child passes is called meconium. It is normal for the baby to pass meconium for the first few days. No need to worry. It is not problematic for the child.
For a baby of this age, it is normal to pass stool several times a day or even after each feed. Alternatively the child may pass stool once in 10 days and that is normal too.
Let me emphasize on the fact that breast milk is the best possible milk for a baby and there can be no alternatives for the same. Just continue it and everything will be fine.
