Do you have a very plentiful supply? It sounds like you could have this, and as a result, she is getting a lot of foremilk when she nurses and not enough hindmilk. On the occasional day when she nurses even more than usual, she would then get more hindmilk, and the problem is temporarily fixed.

One way to deal with this is to block feed, by nursing from one breast only for a period of time, say several hours, and then for the next period of time, use the other breast only. That way she will get more hind milk.

It certainly can't hurt to try this.

I agree green can be a prefectly normal color. Dr. Gordon dicusses normal (and abnormal) poop colors and textures here in "The Color of the day": http://drjaygordon.com/pediatricks/general/poop.html
