Child having green stool. Took Nan pro 2. What could be the cause?

Hello.. My son is 6 months old and I started giving him solids when he was 5 months old. I am nursing him twice a day. I recently started giving him Nan pro 2 as a substitute for breast milk. His stool has been green in color for the past two days. Is this a fact to worry? His other food are rice porridge, raagi porridge, cerlac, vegetable soup, meat soups and fruit juices. I dont know what is causing his green poop but the newly added food in teh list is Nan pro2. Should I stop using this? But he seems to be normal and active as always..Please help..

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Green color of the stool could be because of increased bowel motility and is not of much significance.

Do not worry about that.

I suggest you to continue to breast feed your baby till 2 years of age at this helps in brain growth (along with all the other complimentary feeds.)

So do not stop breast feeding.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
