I recently gave birth to a healthy 3.29kg baby girl through c-section on 5th Feb 2011. I wasn’t able to breasfeed her after the operation, but after a week of trying, I managed to breasfeed her and at the same time I also gave her formula milk(FM).
She passes yellow stools and at times, the stools has a dark green colour. What I would like to know is, is it normal for an infant to pass stools in that colour?
I am thinking of switching her FM to other brands but I am afraid it wouldn’t suit her. At the moment, she is passing stools twice a day. I noticed that there are a lot of brands available in the market. I haven’t had the time to look for one, I only managed to remember this brand as my sister was having this FM when she was born.
Which FM would you suggest is good for infant?

Congrats on being a mum !
It ‘s a fairly common occurence for a baby to pass green stools, now and again -:) If baby is feeding well and thriving, colour of stools is not too important.
I would not bother to change milk brands if current FM suits him, and he is healthy .
