My baby is constipated – could this be your formula?
Any change in diet can effect stool movement, frequency, consistency and colour. Our formula as required is fortified with mineral iron for healthy growth and development. The added iron can cause some stools to be green in colour and may cause some temporary constipation, particularly compared with stools from breastfed babies.
Greenzoo formula has oligosaccharides GOS and FOS which are forms of dietary fibre. They not only help to soften baby's stools for the prevention of constipation but also work to support the healthy bacteria present in the gut.
Babies digestive systems can be affected by all sorts of factors including sickness, introduction of new foods and teething.
If you have any doubts at all it is best to contact your health professional for advice.
