Yellow, brown, green

Poop can be a blend of yellow, brown, and green colors. Babies older than a week usually have yellowish poops. Older kids tend to have brownish poops. Worrisome colors are red (blood), black (old blood), or grey/white (lacking in bile). A doctor should evaluate a child, if his or her poop is a worrisome color.

color of stool will be determined by what you eat, the digestive enzymes in your body and the bacteria in your body. It is normal for there to be a variation in the color of your stools. If your stools turn bloody, jet black (like tar) or pale white (like chalk) you need to talk to your doctor

What color should a 3 yr old poop look like?

Answered by:
Dr. Arti Jain

Like adults

The bowel movements of a 3 year old should look like those of an adult if they are eating regular foods. If they are of different color or texture or associated with any other symptoms, they need to be evaluated by their doctor.

I'm wondering why was my poop a blue dark green color?

Color change

The stool can go through color changes on a daily basis, mainly dependent on the foods that you eat. If the stool color is consistently an abnormal color, independent of your diet, then follow with a doctor for further evaluation. It could be the sign of a malabsorption issue.

most commonly, you had too much coffee or red wine. But it can also be a sign of internal bleeding. So if the stool is still dark, you need to get checked.
