Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Pale green baby poop?

2 answers
My daughter is 15 weeks old. She is on a formula with added iron, so her poop is sometimes a darker green. This morning I changed her diaper and it was a pale green almost a sage color. I've seen a lot of colors in the diaper, but not this one. Is this ok??

its fine when they are little like that their poop can change different colors but if this worries you ask your doctor
it's fine! don't worry. i have seen green, yellow, blue, purple, and orange with my daughter. she eats a rainbow of vegetables and fruits. the only time you need to worry about poop color, is when it's tarry black, or white. both may indicate internal bleeding.
