very graphic be warned..........

DS did have a stomach bug last week and diarrhea was almos black. Improved and he's been fine since.

However "poo" (now solid) is again very dark.

should I be concerned?

Oreo biscuits is usually the culprit in our house.
Has he had any iron rich foods?
TBH I have seen every colour of poo in the past 8 years I don't get excited about it anymore.

I have even seen rainbow (really technicolour poo in ds1---he had been eating crayons hmm )

Honestly if he seems fine in himself and there is nothing else to suggest worry don't.I have honestly like I said seen many coloured poo in my time and it changes from one day to the next.
