Q.

Strange Poo

Hello
My 15 month old son poo has been a bit strange lately. It is slightly hard, dark in colour and it appears in many small round balls.
His diet has not changed

The colour, consistency and smell of a child's poo is often very varaible and hardly ever a sign to be worried about. The most important thing is that your child is otherwise well and thriving.
