Dark, think strand-like things in baby's poop

I was changing my son's diaper this morning when I saw something odd. He had a lot of these thin, short and black strands all over the poop. What could they be? Today was just one poopy diaper and I will monitor his diapers more in the morning. Anyone ever see this in their baby's diaper?

  • Weird. What has he been eating? I would be concerned about worms.

  • my sone has eaten a hairball before. it come right out. sometimes i will find a long hair (mine) or a pine needle, or crayon piece. Even stringy foods like asparagus will go right through the digestive system. probly not serious.
