First ask your pediatrician for help. Then, have your baby evaluated by a pediatric dentist who is skilled in tongue & lip tie releases; usually with a laser. If your baby is lip &/or tongue tied, it can inhibit proper lip seal which allows gas in it’s tummy called Aerophagia. Gut biome is also affected causing discoloration in stool.

If you can, transition baby to all breastfeeding. Breastfed babies have soft, loose stools, more so than formula fed babies. If baby is crying nonstop or vomiting, and distressed, please bring to your pediatrician for evaluation.
