Q.

Green Poo

My 10 week old has been passing green poo for a week now. It''s not watery but the smell is offensive. He is drinking Nan 1 exclusively. Is there a call for concern>

You do not need to worry about green or yellow stools in a young infant. These stool colours are normal and depend on the feed your baby is having.
