3 year old's BM.... adult content

i have noticed with in the last few days that my 3.5 year old has been having newborn like bms, almost black colored and kinda tarry when wipping his behind. is this because he's getting to many vitamins and minerals or should we see the pedi?

  • I would goto the doctor. It sounds like blood in the stool, that's exactly the description of of a bleeding intestine. GET IT CHECKED ASAP.

  • Has he been taking vitamins with iron?. That can sometimes cause it, but I'd call pediatrician to be sure.
