I switched to similac from parents choice. It's great. It dissolves right away unlike the parents choice. Lil guy seems to like it better than the walmart brand. But here is the thing...he's been pooping dark green since I've switched. Like 4 days ago...thats 4 days of green poopoo. He seems happy and fine. Anyone know whats going on?

Yeah its normal, formulas have that effect. My daughters was green with the good start formula. The Similac Sensative, was yellow brown and made it seem like she exploded every time she went, similac her poo changed...and enfamil she is back. There are some formulas out there that actually discolor a babies poo as well and has a rainbow looking effect. Its weird. As far as I know, its just how the formula effects the baby

Funny, when my dd was on parents choice her poo was green and on Enfamil it is yellow. I guess they just digest differently, nothing to worry about.

wait so does that mean I should switch back?

I wouldn't switch back if there is no other problem. Give your baby time to get used to the formula. Each digests differently, and you have to give their bowels time to adjust to the new formula, just like you do when you start solids.
