    Default Green/Black Poo

    Has any ones baby had green/black poo from iron enriched food? Not supplements but things like farex, bellamy's porridge, nutrios etc?
    10 month DD has had black/green poo the last few days.
    As a nurse I immediately think malaena but I'm hoping not! Got an ECHC and GP appointment on Monday but just wanted to run it passed the oracle.

    DD had green sludge poo as a baby, it was a food intolerance (reacting to cows milk protein in my breast milk). If your bub has started eating something they haven't had before it might be that.
