NE1 know what makes LO's poop almost black? TMI

My DD, Zosha 1 year, had had really dark almost black poop for quite a while now. She eats everything and loves meat and can't seem to get enough food. She still BF's 9-10 times a day and drinks water through out the day. She has had several days where she doesn't poop at all and then had harder black deer turds, but only a little for a few days. I started to give her strained prunes the last couple of days and it seems to help. Her poop had been a bit softer but still dark/black. Yesterday after more prunes she pooped huge and more like peanut butter but still dark/black.
I ca't figure out what the problem is. My only thought is that when she eats she always eats the meat first, even if I mix everything together she will pick out the meat and eat it first. But I don't think that is really it because she eats everything I give her anyways, so it's not like she is eating only meat, KWIM?

Thanks for your help, Danni

probably best to call your ped., but if she seems okay otherwise (isn't straining or anything) then it's probably okay. She may just be getting some extra iron from meat/green veggies and possibly from bm (?). Not to scare you, but there is the chance it's blood in her stool. I doubt that's it though since it sounds like this has been going on awhile and she doesn't have any other issues.

I just had to start giving my ds iron drops and his poops have turned really dark/black too. So maybe your dd is getting extra iron?

Thanks fro the answers! There has not been any blood and she is not straining. So I guess that maybe you all are right with the extra iron! Thanks again, Danni
