Question
Answer: Hello, certain types of medication can cause dark stools during your pregnancy. Some variations of antacids, pantoprazole, domperidone and paracetamol are known to cause black stools.  Iron supplements can also cause black stools. Also certain black stools sometime indicate some health issues. If your stool is black and has an extremely foul odour it could be a condition called Melena. If the consistency is tarry and black, it could indicate internal bleeding. If during the third term of your pregnancy, the anal region swells and the stools come out black, it could be a sign of an anal tear. Talk to a doctor to understand if the black stools are related to genetics or medical issues. Hope this helps.

Question: What does bottle green poop indicate
Answer: There are majorly 3 reasons for baby to pass green stool. First, imbalance in foremilk and hindmilk. When baby takes only foremilk he is likely to pass green stool. For this feed baby for minimum of 20mins each breast. This way he ll get hindmilk. Second, When baby has any bacterial or viral infection like cold and cough. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. And you can also use mustard garlic ajwain oil to massage his body. Third, It could be due to stomach infection. In this case get stool test done. Chat with Moms & Dads in your Birth Family on Healofy App http://healofy.com/app
