Thanks for writing to us.
Green poop in babies could happen due to a recent change in the diet, a recent viral infection- cold in your baby's case, very frequent feeding the baby, high sugar content in the baby's food, etc. If there is no fever and the child is feeding normally, then there is nothing to worry and the condition will improve spontaneously.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Hello mee,

Welcome here on hcm.

I will suggest you to visit your family doctor for the proper treatment.

In my view it is some infections in the intestine which ios causing this problem.
