The most frequent causes of black stool are blood in stool and ulcers. If you see black poop in your toddler, get it checked out. Red stool could be a problem or completely harmless.
Diaper rash can affect anyone wearing diapers or incontinence briefs, including adults, babies, and toddlers. Symptoms in adults are the same as symptoms seen in babies and toddlers, and may include a pink-to-red colored rash, or peeling or irritated looking skin. Diaper rash is commonly caused by infrequent diaper changes, which can lead to irritation from chemicals found in urine and stool.

Some babies are like little poop machines, pooping several times a day, usually around every feed. A newborn baby can average around 12 changes in a hour period but you may be relieved to hear that this does slow down as your baby gets older phew! What your baby is fed can also determine how often they poop.
As much as you might not like to admit it, when you have a baby, you talk about poop at least once a day. The average child will go through over 2, diapers in their first year. Not all of those will contain stool.
