Black stools in 12 month old?

My son just turned 12 months on the 15th of this month. He is very regular when it comes to BMs. He has one in the morning and one in the late afternoon. They are always the same(unless he has diarrhea for some reason), so I changed his diaper before his morning nap and there was so much like pitch black poop. Regular consistency nothing like when he was a newborn, but very very black No other symptoms. He has been waking up the last couple night really early like 2am and usually he sleeps through the night, but his BMs before this were normal color. I have not fed him anything different. I dont know if its bleeding in the intestines, so i made an appnt to see his pedi today but just wondering if anyone else experienced this when their little one was around my sons age?
