  • it's probably normal. the switches could've just upset his bowels a little bit and might give him gas, too.

  • my son is on good start and his poop ranges in color from a dark green brownish aste to almost a blueish color with yellow in it. now that he is teething it almost looks like hes breastfed again bt a little more orange. hes on solids too so thats why it has a range but the color seems normal. as long as hes not wicked gassy or uncomforable or black and hard its healthy and normal. if your still concerned take it up with your pediatrician tho.

  • oh yeah and as for hard core breast feeders ignore them. yes breast is best but some people cant. it just shows their ignorance. i breast fed and had to give it up due to excema. a friend had post pardum cardiac myopathy and couldnt do it because of the drugs. and for some people it just doesnt work. i support all people who love their child no matter how the feed sleep carry ect ect ect. just ignore them or report them.
