Stool color other than clay, bloody is normal in any child.
During first 6 months when baby is fully on mothers milk, depending on the absorption stool color will vary from yellow to greenish yellow to greenish
After 6 months,once u started the child on additional foods like spinach, leafy vegetables sometime it may change into green color.
no need to worry.
