Hello Ayutanjung, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
The best nutrition for babies up to 6 months of age is breast milk (ASI). If for one reason or another breastmilk cannot be given, then formula feeding can be recommended. This is because breast milk has far more benefits than formula milk and tends to be more easily accepted by the baby's digestive tract. Breast milk has been shown to cause much less digestive problems for babies than formula milk.
If your breast milk is still out, you should give breast milk first and add formula milk if your breast milk is not sufficient for the baby's needs. If your breast milk has stopped, you can still do a relactation program to restore your milk production to meet the baby's needs. Here is an article that you can read about how to relact.
BABY CHAPTER can turn greenish for several reasons, including:
Babies get too much foremilk (milk that comes out at the beginning of breastfeeding) in babies who are breastfed. Babies receive supplements or formulas that contain iron Post vaccination Babies are allergic to something the mother eats or drinks (in breastfed babies), or to formula milk drunk Babies are sick, for example, coughs, colds or diarrhea. Babies are teething
If since changing formula milk, your baby's bowel movement tends to be more abundant and greenish in color, you should replace formula milk back to formula milk that was used previously. Pay attention again to whether the bowel movements return to normal. If indeed the defecation returns to normal, then the baby may be allergic to the formula that was just given.
Watch for other symptoms your baby has. If the green bowel movements look runny, the baby is defecating more frequently, there are symptoms such as fever, vomiting, or the baby is becoming more fussy, then it is possible that your baby has an infection in the digestive tract / diarrhea. Take your baby to the pediatrician if you notice any of these symptoms.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
