Stop switchin: Stop switching formulas all the time. Stick to one and go with it. Can be normal to have different colors of stool other than red

Green poo: The poo is colored by bile added during digestion.It starts out dark green and transitions through yellows to brown over time.Green poo just means the material is moving through faster. If the kid seems to be better on the comfort, stay with it.
