Peanut Butter?

What it is: Formula poop
When: As soon as formula feeding is well-established
What you need to know: Formula fed babies typically have soft, tan poops. (Some people describe it as like peanut butter – gross, we know!) Don't even try to compare your baby’s formula fed poops to the poops of your best friend's breastfed baby. Your baby's stools will be more solid (but still mushy) and slightly stinkier.
