My DD is 3 months old and she only has one BM a day, usually..
She's formula fed, Enfamil Gentlease.
Her poop is a darker green, and kind of thicker, and sometimes it has lighter greenish/yellowish not as thick mixed in. Ha.

She pushes quite a bit when she poops, so i don't know if she's kind of constipated or what.. And GOD FORBID my pediatrician gives me an answer.

One BM sounds good to me. My son has being doing a poop a day for a few months now. He use to have a little trouble getting it out but he is better now. The color sounds normal also.

Dark green is okay? WIC told me dark green poop is no bueno.

so, f**k WIC.

my son was on goodlife and was having really bad tummy trouble, like screaming and wouldnt settle for anything. so i switched him to the gentlease and that seemed to help. my dr said it might be the iron in the formula, so i tried a lower iron formula (literally bought it last night) and he had a couple bottles of it today and again he was screaming for 45 minutes with pain in his stomach and wouldnt settle for anything (he actually just stopped about 5 minutes ago after finally getting some gas out of him).

basically i love the gentlease formula and it seems to be the only thing that works for my son, anything else just puts him in so much pain and it breaks my heart :( lol he doesnt poop super often either, like usually once a day sometimes there are days where he doesnt poop at all but my dr doesnt seem too concerned with that.
