It can depend on what they have eaten recently. I know blueberries give my kids dark green, almost black stools. If I remember correctly, black stools can mean there is bleeding early in the digestive tract (it would be bright red if the bleeding was near the end of the process). Does your pediatrician have a nurse's line after hours? You could call them and see what they say. I know that the possibility of blood is scary, my daughter had blood in her stool when she was 9 months old. After a bunch of tests they concluded it was probably an immature milk allergy. She grew out of it and was drinking milk at 13 months, no problem. She's 5 now and fine and dandy.
