My 10 month old son has recently had stools that seem gritty almost like there is a small amount of sand in his stool. Should I be worried?

In brief: Baby pooh..ooh!

The color of baby pooh can be anything except tar black, white or bloody.
What comes out is a factor of what goes in and how it is digested. The variants are if they are on any medication and what changes the intestinal tract is going through over the course of a day. If however your child has other symptoms such as fever, vomiting or extreme fussiness, then that would warrant a dr. Visit.
