I don't know what's going on with her pooping

My DD will be 6 mo tomorrow, she's ebf, and she has been teething for about 5 weeks or so. Since she started teething, her poop has turned green. It is the color of a nice fertilized lawn, lol. She's also pooping CONSTANTLY. It had increased from about 3 times to 12 times a day, give or take. Now (yesterday and today), she's constantly going poop and there's always a small amount in her diaper. I don't have enough diapers to change her every 5 minutes, and I don't have the time either I thought that green poop meant that she's getting too much fore milk, but every time she nurses, she empties me. Is this normal for teething? Is this a sign that she's not getting enough of something? A sign of something else? I haven't started her on solids yet, so is this a sign that I should start? Help me out here... I have no idea what is going on with her. Thanks!

She could simply have a bit of a tummy bug. My kiddos would do this if they had a mild stomach bug.

My oldest did get too much foremilk but the other 2 did not.

Do you think that the teething might be causing the tummy trouble?

Lulu's poo always goes haywire when she teethes.

Finn's poop would do that too when he teethed. He would also go more when he was teething.
