Dear Nusrat, why do you give your baby a formula milk? is it because you do not lacatate much? in that case i can help you with some medicines and supplements that will increase your breast milk flow.

hello nusrat,
welcome to healthcaremagic
first of all you avoid all formula feeds till 6 month of age . only give breast milk.

green stools are more common in formulas that have more iron content.
so avoid formula feed.
take care
