Question: My baby is having excessive gas formation... I am not having gas problem. Baby is taking formula feeding. His stool colour is black. What is the reason*?

Answer: hi dear! so dear formula feeding contains iron approx 10mg . the bacteria in the intestines react to the iron sulfate in a supplement or iron-fortified formula. The reaction turns the baby poop dark green or sometimes even greenish-black. so dont get worried . you might want to consult your doctor . this is not a problem as such so dont worry dear. take care dear!
