Q.

Side effects of Neocate

I am wanting to find out what side effects Neocate has. My 3 month old has been on it for a week for eczema, which has cleared up really well, however she hasn' t done a proper poo in that time. Only 3 really dark green almost black very runny ones (two of which were today). She seems fine otherwise.

Is this normal for some babies on Neocate or could it be something else?

This can happen with babies who are fed on Neocate. Neocate is a very special formula for highly cow's milk allergic babies.
