My almost 9 year old son has been having very dark (almost black) stools that are pasty (for lack of a better term). They are very hard to clean after even using wet disposable wipes. He occasionally complains of his tummy bothering him but that he is not in pain . The tummy bothering him is occasional whereas the stool has been this way for months every time that he has a BM. He is no longer taking vitamins (I thought that it may be too much iron) and he eats the same things as myself and his sister and we do not have this problem.
