<p>My 18mth old had something w/corn in it (hes allergic) and he pooped today.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He has not had any bananas or anything stringy.He had black strings in his poop. This happened a couple weeks ago too.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I called the allergist and the nurse said it's most likely due to the corn. Since going corn free, he seems to be more sensitive to it when</p>
<p>hes exposed to it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Has anyone else had this poop issue?</p>

Black strings (if no banana) are probably dried blood from somewhere in the upper GI tract, which would make sense with an allergic reaction.

<p>We used to see that a lot.  I know exactly what you are talking about.  Just like the little black hair-like things in you see in mashed bananas?  </p>

<p>Shameful, off-topic side notes:  OMG!!:  Congrats, Changingseasons...about the baby.  And I'm so sorry, KJ...about the hacking.  Just goes to show you how valuable your recipes are, I guess.  ;)</p>
