Hello Alanuari, thanks for the question for HealthReplies.com
The color, consistency, and frequency of a baby's bowel movements can change according to their age. Usually, the defecation of babies who receive formula milk has a pattern of defecation that is more constant than babies who receive breast milk. The consistency of the stools of infants receiving formula are usually stickier like paste or peanut butter, smellier, and have a color that varies from dark brown, yellowish brown, or greenish brown.
The gray color of baby stools can appear for several reasons, including:
giving solid food to infants giving certain drugs such as antacids to infants there are liver disorders such as biliary atresia
If the gray stool condition persists (not just occasionally), especially if it is accompanied by other symptoms such as jaundice in the baby, dark brown urine, you should immediately take your baby to the pediatrician for further examination and treatment.
That's all the information from me, hopefully it's enough to answer
