Was it the banana?

I Changed my 6 month olds diaper and their were black things in the poop. I gave her a pice of my banana yesterday and the stuff in her diaper kinda looks like the banna I put in the trash. So would it be the banana that made the black spect in her poop?

  • Is she sick? If not do not worry about it.

  • Yes. If you look really close you can see those black threads that are in banana bread! Lol!

  • yes, they are from the banana, if you look at the banana in the center there are little black seeds! Its perfectly normal!

  • It's very possible. An infants poop changes along with the things they eat. Don't feed her anymore banana for the rest of the week and keep on eye on her poop. If it goes back to normal then it was most likely the banana. If it doesn't, then she might have more of a disgestional problem.
