Hello. Thank you for your question. I am not concerned about the color of your daughter's bowel movements. As long as she is comfortable and there is no blood in the stool, she is ok. I would be very careful to make sure that mom is producing enough breastmilk after not breastfeeding for 3 months. As long as the baby's intake is adequate, and she is gaining appropriate weight, she is fine and you do not have to worry.
