My kids are older so I don't remember how their bm's were at age 3..I watched my nephew yesterday and his bm was pretty mushy, like a newborn's would be. It was also light tan with a green tint...the green very noticeable. This kid hardly eats anything and I doubt he ate anything that would turn his stool greenish. He will only eat sausage, bacon, ham, pork chop and maybe corn. He does drink milk...I think maybe he has a milk allergy...he always sounds like he has a lot of nasal congestion and he breathes really heavy, I mean you could be across the room and hear him breathe. He is not overweight and is active...any advice?

As long as the poo isn't black or white, generally its fine. Does he have tummy troubles?

Did he by chance munch on a crayon? I have heard of this happening in small children who can sometimes eat them.

The same can happen with green colored candy.

Actually, those are signs (in the stool) that are classic with milk allergy.

"The slower-onset reaction is more common. Symptoms may include loose stools (possibly containing blood), vomiting, gagging, refusing food, irritability or colic, and skin rashes, like eczema. This type of reaction is more difficult to diagnose because the same symptoms may occur with other health conditions. Most kids will outgrow this form of allergy after 2 years of age, although some might not outgrow it until adolescence." From http://kidshealth.or...k_allergy.html#
