  • Blueberries can turn a stool black...pepto bismol can turn a stool black and so can blood. If it isn't the blueberries or pepto, I'd call the doctor.

  • Hmmm, I'd have the Pedi check him out. Mine said 3 colors of poop to worry about 1.) Red (blood) 2.) White 3.) Really black

    Good Luck!

  • Bag up his/her next poo in a wal-mart bag and take it and your little one to a stat care and show them to determine if it is blood or not because black stool is no good.
