Purple Poop?

My BF 7 month old son had a big purple poop today! He has been eating solids for 2 months now, homemade veggies and fruits, however, this week I started giving him oatmeal and some apple juice (watered down). He still continues to nurse 8-10 times a day but this is the first time he has pooped purple.....normal?

  • I was worried when my DDs poop was orangy red the other day. I looked it up and read "think back to what your child has eaten recently, chances are, it turned their poop a different colors". Then I remembered I gave her carrots.
    So yes, normal. Some foods will turn their poop funky colors. I have to remind myself that now everytime I see a weird color in her diaper.
