Q.

Should I worry - Green Poo

My 11 week old baby has for the last three days had very bright green poo's. He normally makes a poo once a day and it is usually after his early morning feed and a normal yellow grainy colour. The last few days however he has only made a poo in the late afternoon with lots of moaning and it seemed to take him a long time to pass the stool. The poo was also very sticky and firm and alot more than normal.
He is on S26 formula since six weeks and is gaining weight nicely.
Do you think I should take him to my paed? I am concerned that it could be a tummy bug or constipation.
Thank you.

This is probably normal as long as the stools are not very watery.
