Green poop

SincE I started pumping and DS has been getting bottles at daycare, his poop is green. I know when nursing from the breast it can be a foremilk/hindmilk thing. Anyone have this happen or suggestions? On the weekends when I nurse full time it goes back to yellow.

Sorry for TMI.

Quick thought ... The pumped milk may have more foremilk or just be a different composition bc it is combined in the bottle. As long as it isn't causing distress, I don't think it's a real problem. Allergies can also make green poop but you would expect that to show up on the weekend, too.

Based on my research I'd also think it was foremilk/hindmilk imbalance - I believe "they" say to pump a couple minutes past the first drop to ensure you're getting all the hindmilk possible.
