I have probably tripled my normal fiber intake in the last handful of days. I'm doing weight watchers so the more fiber in something, the lower in points it is. Its been great for getting things... erm, moving. haha. BUT it seems its been great for getting things moving for Lily too! She's had two poops today that were more watery than normal, and one was a little green. I'm hoping we'll adjust over the next couple of days - but I'm worrying that I'm taking in more fiber than is good for me while BFing.

Hopefully its just that its new to my body and we'll adjust though. Has anyone else experienced something similar?

Maybe this is the cause of Maddie's green poops too! My mom has Fiber One bars that I always eat at her house, and I've been eating 1 or 2 a night. Then I had extra fiber pop tarts. She's had some green poop and has been going more often. I think I'm going to cut it back a few days and see if that is what is causing it.

I've been eating Fiber One brand stuff a lot too! I had one of the granola bars this evening, and a muffin for breakfast!
