Red poop?!

My 2 yr old just had a poopy diaper that was very red. I don't want to think the worse but she did have red velvet cake last night. Can that have caused her poop to be red? I've never seen this before.

  • It very well could be the cake. Try and wait a few days and give it to your child again, see if it comes out red once more. If it does, it was definately the cake. The coloring in things like that can definately change the color of a childs poop.

  • YEp..it was most likely the cake! If it was blood in the stool..it will usually come out jet black.

  • I agree. I've seen my son's poop turned very weird colors once in a while. Bright orange was the worst (from an orange drink...)
