It might just be that my babies are just different to each other but ds used to do a yellow poo at least once daily. but dd only poos every 4 days or so and it's always a dark brown colour. Completely different consistency too. Sorry for tmi. Is it maybe because i'm taking iron? I am tempted to stop taking it to see if it makes a difference. I don't want her to be uncomfortable because she's constipated.

Should add that she seems happy and healthy enough if a bit windy.

I take a lot of iron but haven't seen this effect.
Are there any other differences?

I'm taking iron. 2 months to go of a 6 month course. I haven't noticed anything like you describe.

Both Ds1 and ds2 had green jelly like poos when I took pregnacare post natally. Midwife told me not to worry as more important that I get my vitamins. I've switched to a boots basic multivitamin now and ds2 poo is back to normal.

I have been taking spatone for several months and haven't noticed any difference in baby's poos.
