Dark greenish/brown poop.

My baby is 6 weeks old. Formula feed and had regular bm's until recently. The last few days he's had runny brownish green poop. Is it normal?

  • As long as it isn't soaking completely into the diaper and isn't black, grey, bloody or mucousy, then it is normal. The color and consistency will change wiht what you eat.

  • yes its normal, when a baby is formula fed they are usually constapated because of all of the iron thats in formula, but if they havent had a bm in a few days it can be runny.
