Dear Doc,

My little girl is 3 weeks old. I breasfed her for 2 weeks, as well as supplementing her with Nan 1. Ive stopped breastfeeding, and changed her formula to S26Gold. She' s doing well on the new formula, but she had a greenish stool earlier today. Is that because of the change in formula. How do I ease over to a new formula. Do I carry on with S26 or go back to NAN 1?
Im scared she has diaria. Please help

Your baby's stool is perfectly normal and there is no need for concern. Continue on the new formula.

No need to change, the green stools are due to the Iron and sometimes it|(stool) even smells like iron. Both my children has a green stool once in a while, sometimes yellow with white pips in it....
