My dd had greenish poop yesterday. It seems like I heard that being a sign of low iron. I could be wrong. Anyone know?

You slightly pull and look inside the lower eyelid. The color is optimally bright red. Old test doctors used before the bloodwork was available. But still valid!

Pinkish is OK but really pale is a warning sign.
