    Question Grapes and Poop-This is Gross, So Read at Your Own Risk!

    Ds is eleven mo and just began eating grapes. He was sick recently too (with roseola) and wasn't eating solids at all, just nursing. (poor baby!) Anyway, so his poop went back to ebf poop: yellow. Then, when he started showing interest in eating solids again, we offered grapes and he gobbled them up, as well as bananas.

    So, my question is this: are the insides of grapes "vein-y"? His poop looked soft and yellow with some partially-digested grapes, but then some tiny reddish viens in the more solid parts. Would grapes do that? What about the bananas?

    I called the nurse to ask if this was normal and she didn't seem too interested in our conversation whatsoever. I asked he if I could bring the diaper in for her or the ped. to see and she just kind of blew me off. (She's new.)

    I would vote for the bananas. They can look like streaks of black threads. Similar to what the inside of a banana muffin looks like (I will be off banana muffins for awhile after typing that).

    What about if they're red, maybe purple veins?

    Sorry for spoiling your appetite! BTW, how are you feeling these days?

    Well - dare I say do you have a pic

    Honestly, if it happens again I might call a doc, but I doubt it's much to worry about.

    Veiney texture probably the banana...Color from the grapes if they were red or purple grapes...DS1's daycare was totally freaked out after he had had red grapes and his poo was red.

    No, they were white grapes. His Tylenol that he took to get the fever down was grape flavored and artificially colored. Maybe that had something to do with it???

    My mom warned me the first time I fed my son bananas not to freak out - many moms freak out thinking their child has a parasite or something. It's not. Totally bananas.

    And the red/purple was probably from the medicine.
