Question what causes Meconium poo in a 10m old?!?!UPDATED

Ok.... my 10mths old just got a fever of 101(underarm) out of the blue this evening....I havent been able to get him to nap at all today-but that was the only "symptom"...

Well, he just has what looks EXACTLY LIKE a meconium poo that brand-new babies have. He hasnt eaten anything different etc...

Any idea what could cause this? Now that he has the fever he not feeling well....just wants to nurse & whine....

Out of ALL my boys & others Ive cared for I have NEVER seen anything like this.......? (the poo)

call the dr! i don't know what it is but thats not normal for a 10 month old to have. have you given any tylenol, a 101 is a high fever for a baby under 1 years old.I would call the dr's line and have them call you back , at least thats how our ped works, call though do not wait you don't want it to be something more that we don't see you know please keep us updated mama

Hmm, I can't remember what it was but I'm pretty sure I've read that black poops aren't good. I second calling the doctor.

Don't wanna scare you, but black poo can mean blood in the gi tract. No bueno. Call the doc. And nurse him on demand.

Drink lots of water yourself and take your multivitamins.

That's what I was about to say - I hope he's better soon. Save a poopy for a stool sample - the doc or ER may need it.

i agree with the mamas above, this is an ER worthy thing, black poops are only in new borns, if its in an older child it is a sign of blood in the GI tract.

I was thinking the same thing about black stools. Definitely get to the doc or ER. I am sure everything will be fine.
