Pooh!!! question - its green

Question:

I'm sure I have read that there is a reason for this but cant remember, ds2 has had 3 loose lime green nappies today - and according to his sister a purple one!! but cant verify that and she is a bit of a drama queen!, what could be causing it?, his bum is not sore and he is not off form - apart from being a narky crab - but that is par for the course lately , no strange foods either that I can think of
Answers:
I think in smaller babies it's supposed to be hunger - but it'd hardly be that?
Maybe it's just something he ate that this time didn't agree with him. I wouldn't worry too much - it might be back to normal by tomorrow. If not then as long as he's in good form you could just monitor it and see how he's doing.
Answers:
I thought it was to do with lactose (or some part of milk) and a difficulty in digesting it which could be them getting too many milk products or just having a temporary difficulty in digesting them (which could be a bug).
Funny, ds2 had a couple of nappies like that last week. I cut out his afternoon yog (though wasn't sure if that was the reason or teething related off-colourness) but he's fine again and eating his yog as usual with no problem.

Hi paula
Fiach had some kiwi fruit last week and had a green nappy from it. Are you sure it wasn't something he ate, such as kiwi, processed peas, or even a crayon ( Fiach gave me a fright with a red nappy once after chewing on a red crayon)?
Answers:
Paula - P has produced some of the most amazing colours, usually depending on what he eats. From time to time they're green but to be honest, I dont look too hard anymore! We had a fluorescent green offering lately, but I think it was from a crayon. Hopefully O will be back to normal soon. If he's in good(ish!) form and eating well, its probably (hopefully) harmless.
Answers:
Think green is a little gastric bug thing...but then has he eaten any green veg....C's are like this when he eats brocolli!
Answers:
