My 6 and 1/2 month old baby is constipated after eating solids- is she not ready?

1 month old, formula feed infant has dark green poop that smells like skunk (sometimes stringy looking)...baby is gassy as well. Is this normal?

That decision can be best made with your child's doctor who will know what formula your child is and/or has been on. Good luck. ...Read more

Breast milk is the perfect baby food, thus there is less "waste" so to speak. If the baby's stomach is not distended, and he has a large soft stool infrequently this is not constipation requiring intervention. ...Read more
