My son has been known to have black spots in his poop before if he eats bananas or blueberries! But I havent give him none of those in a long time. The only thing knew he had was stage 2 gerber mac n cheese with veggies but that was like 5-7 days ago but since saturday he has had this problem.. not everyday and not everytime he poops! Idk if its the pears and raspberries im feeding him.. maybe the raspberries.. cause it? I called his doc 2 days ago and they told me to let them know if it continues.. well its now happened once.. should I call or see if does it again? It looks dark green but in certatin spots.. etiher its REAL dark green or black!

Bananas do that to my daughter, its so weird.
Sometimes black spots and sometimes black stringy bits.

Google pretty much says that the fibre that holds the food together can come out in the poo as strands of fibre. So it can happen with a few foods. Nothing to worry about.
