    my formula-fed baby boy (almost 3 months old) has been pooping dark green the past couple days. What is considered diarrhea at this age?
    he has also been exceptionally cranky and doesn't sleep.

    Dan Brennan, MD responded:
    Usually diarrhea will present as some combination of looser and more frequent stools. If he seems to be getting dehydrated, you see blood or mucus in the stools, then you should definitely call your pediatrician.
