    It looks like someone just sneezed in my babies nappy. It is like green mucous. Is this something i have eaten or a more serious problem?

    if it's green, it's probably just the lots of vegis you've eaten. if it's mucous like, maybe it's sth new you ate yesterday that he/she is allergic to. did you eat sth new yesterday?

    Even if you are breastfeeding exclusively, an occasional green stool is considered normal if most are yellowish, mustardy stools.

    From LLL:
    Consistently green, watery and foamy stools are also thought to be caused by a low intake of hindmilk, referred to as foremilk-hindmilk imbalance or "oversupply syndrome." Baby may act colicky, gain weight slowly and bowel movements may be very forceful. An overabundant milk supply or overactive let-down reflex may be involved. Breastfeeding techniques to improve the baby's control of the milk flow and intake of hindmilk may quickly reduce these symptoms.

    My LO had the occasional 'snotty' nappy too.
