gross question

My baby used to be breast fed but he has been getting mostly formula for the past couple weeks. His poop is green now and smells soo bad (never smelled when he was breast fed). Is that normal poop for a formula fed baby?

  • Yes. it's a little harder on the tummy than breastmilk so will have yucky poops. Wait until he starts on meats!

  • Yep. Breast milk poo and formula poo are completely different. Be ready for all different colors and textures. Your babe is fine.
