Black Specs

Source: 3 year-old SPD boy
Style: Unformed, watery. Diarrhea with a few chunks of undigested food (corn?). Tons of little black specs; looks like black pepper throughout. Also a few black "seeds" and some white "seeds."
Notes: Child has had virus/stomach bug for 2 days. Ate very minimally throughout the day. Behavior was great.

Stomach Virus

Source: 3-year old SPD boy
Style: Diarrhea, unformed, undigested food (beans and corn).
Notes: Over the course of a day, the child's poop went from diarrhea with chunks of undigested food (beans and corn) to thick watery diarrhea to thinner watery diarrhea. I am suspecting a viral stomach bug because this child's sibling got the same thing the next day. Vomiting also occurred.

Undigested food

Source: 3-year old SPD boy
Style: Mushy. Two colors. Undigested kidney beans and corn.
Notes: Child had just finished antibiotics when this picture was taken. Child had been constipated for a few days (as far as I knew).

Yeast Die-Off/Oxalate Dump

Source: 17-month old girl
Style: Unformed, black specks, yellow cheese-like strings, gritty
Notes: Hundreds of black specks, and a few yellow cheese-like strings. It was very gritty too, which I [the contributor] believe to be an oxalate dump, based on some research. She is on an almost exclusive diet of Neocate infant formula, with a small amount of stage 1 baby foods as well, so this is definitely not something she's eaten passed out in the stool. A brief history: she's been on probiotics for 5 months, and biotin and magnesium for 6 weeks. We first started seeing signs of yeast in her stools 3 weeks after starting the biotin/magnesium. She is 24.5 lbs, 17.5 months old, and currently taking 3,500 mcg biotin twice a day, 100 mg magnesium twice a day and Ther-Biotic Infant Formula probiotic (a strep-free probiotic) from Klaire labs. Her chronic constipation (since 2 months of age) seems to be gone (hooray!) and her mood, demeanor and sleep are much improved.

Very Dark Mush; Gritty

Source: 3-year old SPD boy
Style: Dark, hard mush. First part that came out (hard to see here) may have been formed and coiled like a snake on top of itself with the mush on top. This was dark like dark chocolate. Looks "gritty."
Notes: Child had strep but it had not yet been diagnosed, so was on no antibiotics at the time.
