My 6 month old hasn't had a bowel movement in the past couple of days. I didn't think anything of it other than perhaps constipation. I was going to get my hubby to bring back something for it to help on his break today.
Well, about 25 minutes ago he finally had a poo, and as the title says, was "Sticky, darkgreen stool, almost black". I had noticed a dinginess to his urine this morning too.
I called the pediatrician, waited... waited... waited, no answer. I ended up leaving a message for them to call me back ASAP, so I'm waiting on this callback.
Anyways... I'm in a panic. I don't have a car so it's not like I can get anywhere right now. I don't know anyone to take me anywhere. I basically have to wait for my hubby to get off on break, which isn't for another hour 1/2. I need some support, possible scenarios that might not mean internal bleeding.
He does eat a formula with iron in it, but he has been on this formula for a while and has been having regular stools, until now. So, I doubt his stool being the color it is, is from the brand of formula. I've tried solids maybe 3 times.
There is no fever... though I would consider him more fussy than normal. I'm keeping a very very close eye on this until I can get in contact with the pediatrician.
I don't know what to do. I've been reading but it seems black stool only points to a few things; different foods, formula with iron, or internal bleeding.
Could it possibly be anything
else? Like I said, no fever... a bit more fussy.
