Dark Green-Coloured Baby Poop

Description

Iron Supplement- Fed Baby Poop

If you provide your baby with iron supplements, your infant’s poop may turn dark green or almost black in colour. This does not usually happen very often, but is completely normal.

What should I do

There is no need to be concerned with the colour change, as it has no significance to your baby’s digestive system. However, should your baby’s poop colour have tinges of black, but he/she is not taking an iron supplement, it would be best to speak to a doctor to ensure that it is not melena, or digested blood.
