Eversince we changed dear son FM to similac, his stools has been greenish color... i wonder is that normal??
any mummies here giving similac to your baby also same??
Yes it is normal.
I asked my pediatrician before. He says that Similac is high in vegetable fat/protein so cause baby's stool to be green. As long as it is not bright green it is ok. The stools green colour should be dark green.
Even when I eat lotsa vegetable and bf my baby, his stools will be dark green.
Only if it is bright green it will be a cause for concern. You can click on the link below to see if your stool matches those there.

As for wind in the tummy from the bubbles, it's somewhat true. My baby always had a lot of wind. But I wasn't sure if it was coz my baby dont't know how to burp or what. But I think as long as the baby dont't drink the bubbles, which usually flow to the top of the bottle, it should be ok.
That time my son drink Similac, super a lot of bubbles .... My friend's baby drinking the Step 2 also a lot of bubbles.. LOL!!!
Now my baby not on Similac lee... He got milk allergy. Now he's on NAN HA. Hypoallergenic forumla... It's actually a bit bitter. But bo bian.
Last time my son on similac. alot of bubbles...how come huh... weird. is it because now new packaging?
just to check, hows yr dear son stools like? my dear son stools are abit mustard & watery, my mum says babies stools cannot be like that, must be like adults 1pc 1pc type...i told her cos dear son havnt start on solids so his stools are like mustard, she kept argue & say cannot be & last time me & my bro not like that..
Haha.. I always shake. My baby impatient. :P
only when your dear son started to have solid food, then the poo will slowly become lik adults'..
just tell your mum, all babies lik that.. cos all the FM has change alrdy.. no longer heaty =)
So just to check, it's ok for baby's stools to be green everyday? My daughter's was yellow everyday before when she drank friso. After changing to Nan pro, everyday is green now. Quite worried but not keen on changing back to friso cos it seems her appetite is slightly better after changing. Please advise!! Thanks!
mother in law still said that he may got shock, thats y his stool is so dark green and appears in mustard form.. Asked and checked with pediatrician already, and he said its NORMAL. But mother in law dont believe. Then pediatrician asked us "do you tink your son will get shock EVERYDAY and poo greenish??"
I'm very agreed with apollomummy! the FM is so diff now compared to the past..
hanor my mum also say greenish = kena shocked.. but how can she kena shocked everyday? shes drinkin s26
wow, thanks mummies for all the info! Like that think i no need to worry so much . I also thinking how can she be shocked everyday. She's always doing the things that shock us rather! haha.
