Pediatrician Dr. Taher Kagalwala's  Response
Greenish black discoloration of potty can be due to an extreme state of starvation (for example, when a sick baby is on intravenous fluids in a hospital), or when there is intestinal infection with increased intestinal movement, for example in a gastroenteritis. Hence, please get her potty checked for infection. If positive, please see a doctor, a pediatrician.
