Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Do not worry regarding the green color of the stool.

Green color of the stool indicates increased gut motility and nothing else.

So if there is no blood in the stool or the stools are not watery and large quantity and baby is other wise active one need not worry regarding the color of the stool.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
