1 week old passing black hair like residue in nappy

My One week old son had just had a weird nappy. It has black hair like residue that looked like it had been expelled with some force to cover a lot of the nappy.

We had already got passed all the black meconium and dark nappies post birth and had moved on to the nice yellowy orange ones.

Seems strange to me that we seem to be discovering more laguno residue hidden in his gut one week after birth.

Has anyone had a similar experience?

Has your baby inadvertently been fed banana? By a toddler sibling maybe? Banana can produce this sort of nappy in babies who don't have a fully developed digestive system. I would speak to a GP.

i wanted to say banana too, until i read the op and saw that the baby was only a week old. i thought my dd had somehow eaten tobacco, until dp pointed out she'd had banana and that was what it looked like digested.

hope you get to the bottom of it.
