TMI - Toddler poo colour

(5 Posts)

Hello,

Advance warning of a poo post...

Toddler had what I would call a black poo this morning. Is that something I should mention to the GP/HV? Or is there something blatantly obvious that could have caused it?

Probably being a bit PFB , but we had to get him checked recently due to having blood in his poo , but all came back clear.

He hasn't eaten blueberries (but did have a small carton of blackcurrent juice yesterday)

Thank you in advance!

I would get it checked based on the fact he had blood in his poo recently, better to be safe. Not sure blackcurrent juice can affect poo colour.

I would go back to the gp for another check just to be on the safe side xx

Black poo is blood in poo, yes GP!
Good luck...
