Early this morning Nolan had two very small, dime sized dark green almost brown but still seedy BMs. Overnight he didn't quite eat as well as he should have he would nurse for just a few minutes, about 5 ish, and then go back to sleep and walk up and hour to hour and half later and eat again. He had been going 3 to almost 4 hrs overnight but at the very least he would go 2 to 2 1/2 overnight.

Corbin's poo is still yellow and seedy but still very small.

Any ideas what is going on? I thought maybe a foremilk/hidemilk imbalance. I have been taking fenugreek and noticed a big difference in the way Corbin nursed in just a few days.

Tegan had that once, and I was worried, but it was just the once and then back to her usual seedy yellow poo. From what I understand it can just happen now and then, if they eat less or you ate something that didn't agree with him, etc, but it's nothing to worry about unless it becomes a pattern.

I think foremilk/hindmilk imbalance is more shown by frothy and pond scum green poops. If it is still seedy, that's good. Sometimes the color is randomly darker or lighter but I wouldn't stress unless it persists or he has other symptoms. And waking up for more frequent feeds, sounds like a growth spurt to me. So I personally wouldn't worry to much

I love the symptom checker, I have this app on my phone and use it all.the.time
