My 15 month old (12 adjusted) has had super bad, watery diarrhea for the past 72 hours or so, no other noticable symptoms. The past few diapers have tons and tons of little black stringy worm looking things (even in this picture where its a more solid poop, for the first time in 3 days).... Its starting to freak me out a little. Does anyone have any thoughts?

He hasn't eaten anything out of the ordinary, he has a pretty bland diet because he has texture issues from being premature... That's why I can't figure out what in the world it is! I called the doc about his diarrhea yesterday and they weren't concerned :/

Do you have the drs cell ask him if you can send this picture to him 

I have my pedis cell and she has asked on numerous occasions for pictures when I called on the weekend before making a trip too the office and has helped a lot

Almost looks like raisins my kids had crazy poop similar once because of a bad stomach bug. It was foam like diarrhea

Has your child had a banana recently?  Banana fibers can look like that.

Looks like something he ate more than likey. The stringy things reminds me of how banana bread looks.

It depends on what he's eaten recently. My dd pooped black a few days ago & it freaked me out but I forgot she ate a bunch of black beans the day before. Bananas can also make poop look weird with white worm looking things in it. I would keep an eye on it & call your pedi if it still looks like that in a few days. It's easy for them to check for parasites. You just have to give them a stool sample.
