    Default What colour is normal?

    I know its predictable, but I'm concerned about baby poo!
    Natalie's has undergone some rather dramatic changes over the course of her life. She is breastfed. Currently, it is runny and almost green in colour - quite dark. I wondered if it is because I am taking an iron supplement and that is being transferred to her through my milk and making it darker? Previously it was always mustardy in colour.

    I think that iron can make poo a bit green so you're probably right about the cause.
    DH gave Yasin blue gatorade a while ago. The first I knew about it was when I opened his nappy and found freaky blue poo!!
