Welcome to HCM
Read your prob, black stool has not develop any prob n its not due to any diease, it occure due to top feeding, milk allergy, n due to iron syp. if she feed well n not cried so much then nothing to worry.
Dear Ms.Michael, Dr. Aseem's answer will apply to many babies and such episodes are generally harmless. However, I will advice you to consult a Paediatrician as there can be other serious causes of black stools(or melena in medical terms). Without assessing the baby one can only keep guessing the cause of the problem. Best wishes to you.
