Q.

Hard Stools

My 5 month old twins both have very hard, putty-like stools, which are normally dark brown to dark green in colour (like the outside skin of an avocado). They are on breastmilk and Isomil 1. I' ve tried adding a pinch of brown sugar to their formula but this does not seem to work. They seldom have loose stools. Is this normal and what can I do to alleviate this?
