: Sorry if this is gross.....

: My 8 month old baby's poop has been dark green (almost like black) on and off. It seems to be more so when I give him oatmeal cereal. Is that possible? I am just worried.


I am new to this message board. I am a PA. The dark green, almost black stools, is caused by the iron content in the oatmeal cereal and is not a cause for concern.
