Formula turned grey?!

Every morning I put a spoonful of pureed bananas in 6 ounces of formula for my daughter in her sippy cup so she can have a "tasty" breakfast. I have done this for about 3 weeks now. Also, I am using the same formula I always do, and I just opened it up yesterday so I know it is not gone bad. The only difference is I usually do not use the bottle warmer for her morning meal, only her night one that does not have the bananas. However, today is very cold so I heated it up. I've used the bottle warmer daily without this happening, even with the same sippy cup. Everything was cleaned as well. The thing is, as soon as I took the cup from the warmer and shook it, I noticed the formula had turned grey! What could have caused this to happen!? Could it have been heating it with the bananas, or is this something else!? I cannot think of what it could have been!

  • Bananas turn gray after a while. Whenever I leave the bowl from baby's bananas in the sink and come back later to wash it it has turned gray.

  • It's the banana in it just as long as your baby eats it right away it should be ok just don't leave it laying around all day whatever they don't finish throw the rest away after a while.

  • Hmmmm... I BF so I don't know about formula. Maybe you should take it back to the store? I don't think I would serve it.
