Hi! If breastfeeding is very short duration 5 min or so, only foremilk baby takes and causes such stools. Make sure baby is adequately breast fed atleast for 15-20min each side .
Next Steps
Breast feeding is safest rather than formula feeding with bottles

It is preferable to only breastfeed baby. That way, any sort of infection can be avoided. Ensure you breastfeed baby for at least 20 minutes from each breast, so that baby gets both the foremilk and hindmilk. If baby is gaining weight adequately, there is no need to worry. Check with your doctor and monitor baby's weight, once weekly, at least for the next couple of weeks.
