Our 9 year old son has had blue stools the last 2 days. He feels fine, lots of energy, normal appetite. The stools are well formed, but blue. There was some green tonight (7/15), but blue has been the color recently. Why blue? He goes swimming at a public pool. The family has eaten the same food as our son, with normal stool color.
I am uncertain why your son should experience a transient change in the color of hi stool. My initial thought is that he ate something that stained the stool. I doubt that the change resulted from swallowing chlorinated water.
