I have started my "off the growth charts" DS on rice cereal.He is 4.5 months old and it's been a week since he started. He's only getting about 1 teaspoon of cereal and I'm adding expressed BM to it. (I apologize if this is already posted in here somewhere)
My concern is this: His poops have been very green. Greeen like the grass on my front lawn and he hasn't been grazing! It is also not quite as thick as it was when he wasn't eating cereal.
I have considered that maybe he shouldn't be on it as i really did plan on waiting until 6 mths but after the dr's appointment last week she kind of planted the seed that maybe he's ready. I really think he is. He likes sitting in the high chair, he opens his mouth like a little bird and swallows real good, and was fussy this morning until I gave him some.
Is the poop an indication of an allergy? Is it maybe the iron (it is an iron enriched cereal)? I don't know...should I be concerned?
He used to have such lovely yellow poops...can anyone share anything with me? Do I have to take him back to the doctor? What about going to oatmeal instead? Help pls.
