My formula fed foster baby has realy dark green almost black poop and its really runny. Is this normal? Also he was a drug and alcohol exposed baby

But just very dark green are okay, as are the various yellow, greens, oranges and browns. Bad color is pure white, totally black, or red bloody. (purple would be weird too, but I've seen that only after purple birthday cake!) also, runny is good for baby poo. ...Read more
