I think that is common on that milk. does it not even mention on the box that green smelly poo is a side effect?

Yes, these milks are well-known for this side-effect. Not sure it's on the box, though. Your HV should be able to tell you more, and assess whether this is something you need to worry about. You could also call the manufacturers' helpline - they should let you know if the colour and smell are what you need to expect.

the cow and gate website says this:

When you start using Cow & Gate Comfort Milks you may notice a change in your baby's nappies. Sometimes stools can be very loose and may also be greenish in colour. Don't worry! This is because of the special ingredients in Cow & Gate Comfort Milks and it’s perfectly normal.

You might also notice your baby has increased wind – especially when you first start feeding with Cow & Gate Comfort Milks. Again, this is nothing to worry about – it's just a sign that your baby's digestive system is beginning to get used to the milk.
