: : 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.

: Thank you Jeanine. Does that mean that there is more iron in oatmeal than rice cereal?

: And welcome to the board!

Thank you. Oatmeal contains a slightly higher amount of iron. As long as he is not constipated, I wouldn't be concerned. If he is, switching to rice cereal may be a little easier on his digestive system.
