You may observe green feces show up in your baby’s diaper and you may take a look at it by asking yourself, “Is my baby’s feces healthy?” In this case, you shouldn’t have yourself worried much as the green feces generally cause no concern at all. Formula-fed babies will normally have green feces developed due to the iron-fortified formula they’re taking. As long as your baby seems happy and not suffering any problems with constipation, there’s nothing for you to worry about. To improve the condition of green feces, you may switch from formula to soy-based, which generally shows great improvement in a week or two. Or else, if this doesn’t work for your baby, please consult your doctor to get a sample of a hypoallergenic formula.
