Gross Warning: What makes my sons poop look like this?

I know this is gross but I'm desperate. I formula feed and my son was on Gerber Soothe but I switched him to soy because his poop is always semi-hard just to see if it would make a difference. Well it hasn't. I've tried Karo, water and juice. Nothing seems to help. Well below is a pic of his latest poop. I was wondering if anyone has dealt with this and might know anything.

I don't know what could be causing that. I hope you get some answers soon.

I found this on-line....


Will formula-feeding affect my baby's poos?

If you are formula-feeding your baby, her poos may be different to a breastfed baby's. You may notice they are:

  • Bulkier in texture than a breastfed baby's (a bit like the texture of toothpaste). This is because formula milk can't be digested as fully as breastmilk.
  • Pale yellow or yellowish-brown in colour.
  • Strong-smelling, more like an adult's.


Formula-fed babies are more prone to constipation than breastfed babies. Talk to your health visitor if you feel your baby has a problem.

I also just read it could be the iron in the formula.

With formula though.

It's a side effect of formula.
