Baby Feed

Asked for Male, 1 year

I switched from Similac to Morinaga NL33 for my boy(4months) due to spit ups & indigestion issue on child specialist recommendation. He also advised for bliss infant carminative 5ml twice. Now my baby poop color is changed to greenish black sticky and many smelly. He said that due to iron thing and will be fine but today was the third day. Is it due to switching and will get normal or anything serious?

Dear Patient,

Stools get darker on taking iron supplements and some kids may get diarrhea others to get constipation. Was your child anemic? Why did the doctor start the iron supplement? Consult with your doctor as to what to do now- stop the iron supplement or start probiotics?
Stools don't darken on changing milk brand but they may turn runny on it.

For further consultation, you can choose from our list of best Pediatricians in Islamabad and seek in-person advice.
