Another Green Poop Question

Angela in California - February 7

my son is 11 days old and for the last week almost he has been doing green poops. He passed his meconium poops for several days at the hospital and then he went into these green, seedy poops. I am br___tfeeding (with a little formula supplementation) and I was expecting his poops to be mustard yellow. Some times they are sort of green-yellow, but mostly they are green. The doctor said this is ok, but I think it's odd. Anyone else experience this? Does it mean something I'm eating is not agreeing with him?

Again, if you are supplementing with formula, the iron in the formula turns their poop green. If you were b___stfeeding alone, then the poop would be more mustard-seedy (tmi). If it was black then I would be concerened, but green is still in the normal range for formula supplemented babies. Good Luck!
