    Default Weird Poo from my 3yo (maybe TMI)

    My 3yo, still in nappies, has been having some very strange poos over the past few weeks.

    She often has a fairly loose poo, so I'm not worried abou that, but recently, her loose poos have this weird stuff in them which looks like fine dirt, or black sand or something. If it had only happened once, I would just assume she'd probably eaten some dirt or sand at some point during the previous day, but I've seen it probably three or four times over the past few weeks.

    Anyone seen anything similar, or have any idea what this might be?

    My son gets this when he eats passionfruit. Could that explain it?

    She has just started taking some vitamin supplements actually, but I just had a look and they don't have iron in them.

    This is like DS! 'Sandy' and sloppy poo... ALWAYS after eating fruit (any fruit - banana, apple and strawberries mostly).

    I am at the point where I won't give him fruit anymore as it's horrid on his body.

    Does she eat fruit? I know you said no passionfruit but other fruit?

    My ds's paed said that poo can be any colour/consistency, EXCEPT for red, white or black as all of them can mean blood from the gut. Black means blood from the stomach. My ds had bad reflux so I had to watch for all of these and thankfully didn't end up having to worry. I would be taking your ds to the GP tomorrow (or Paed if he already has one).

    She does eat a bit of fruit, not much but has been eating more recently. I wonder if that's it?

    But yes, I think I might mention it to her paed and see if he us concerned. Thanks all, for your replies.
