For about nine days now there has been what appears to be dirt in my 4mo's poop. There is no way she has been eating dirt. At first I thought maybe she somehow got some dirt on her hand (like a handful of cat, for example) and then sucked on her hands, but it has been going on for a while now (and the cat rarely goes outside so she should be clean).
Should I be concerned? Could it be something from inside her body as opposed to something she put in her mouth? BTW, she is EBF.

Is it black/dark brown? The first thing I think is digested blood. Stomach ulcer, esophageal irritation (swallowed blood), etc. I don't think it's an emergency, but I would call the pediatrician.

Yes. Would it be grainy? I figured blood would be gooey or clotty... But the grains do smear if I rub them.

Does it look like coffee grounds? That's usually blood.

Mama I don't want to scare you, but in would probably call your pedi now or the ER to make sure it's not an emergency.
