Default Soy Formula question

We switched Jake to soy formula due to the fussiness about a week ago. It has helped the crying and gas but I was wondering if anyone has used it before and could tell me if it is normal (or was with your baby) for the BM's to slow down? He was going every day but he has slowed to about every 3 days. And (TMI!!!) it is green and really smelly!!!!! If no one knows I can call the ped but thought I would check here 1st!

switching formulas can cause a bit of constipation in babies until their system adjusts to the new formula. That is what it sounds like here, but if you are really worried, don't hesitate to call your ped.

I used soy w/ my ds and he didn't have a bm every day, im not sure if it was the formula or just him, but it does take time for their system to adjust.
