    Yep, I would have though iron is doing it?

    Has she had any/different formula or some sort of high iron solids, or are you giving her any baby vitamins - Pentavite etc?

    No not anything different, she is b/f, and I don't give her any vitamins.

    OK, if she is b/f, what about you? Have you been eating differently?
    Otherwise if you can think of nothing to account for it (licorice is another thing that might do it) maybe get it checked out?
