Answer: Black motions are not normal but this may be because of something he's eaten. Rarely, black motions are a sign of bleeding in the gut, so for this reason, I would say take him to your GP and have him checked out. Take with you a fresh specimin of the poo so the doctor can see exactly what it looks like and if necessary, send some of it off to the laboratory for analysis. Cheers Jane
