I had a can of the ready to feed formula and we usually use powder but I ran out so I decided to try the ready feed. He didn't seem to have any issues with it, except it was thinner than the powder formula so it came out a little fast. But his poop has been completely different today. It's usually solid and kind of greenish brown, and he's had two diapers today that have been pretty wet and a really dark, almost orange-ish brown color.

Has anyone noticed a big difference in poop between the ready to feed formula and the powder formula?

I've not used that type of formula, but i do know that any dietary change (solids, diff. formula) usually results in different poop

Ellie went on Similac ready to feed instead of powder for a few days when the recall happened and it gave her really gross, dark brown runny poop. When we went back on powder formula, it went back to normal.

Yeah, it was definitely the RTF formula. Honestly it was easier to prepare, except for having to warm the bottles, but I probably won't use it again because those diapers were GROSS!

I felt the same way, the RTF poops were way too gross and heating up bottles is such a pain. I still always wonder why RTF is so brown when powder formula is almost white.
