A newborn's stool is normally blackish for several days at the beginning of its life. The black color is caused by meconium, which is a substance that enters the baby's body while still in the womb, including amniotic fluid and other fluids produced by the fetus while still in the womb. Baby stool will change to normal stool color, which is brownish yellow and liquid textured for babies who are exclusively breastfed and tends to have a rough texture on babies with formula milk. If the color of blackish stool lasts continuously (more than 1 week) then it should be suspected of abnormalities in the baby's digestive tract. These disorders include bleeding in the upper gastrointestinal tract, namely the esophagus (esophagus), stomach and duodenum. There is an indication that this disorder needs examination and evaluation from the pediatrician directly as well as supporting examinations such as abdominal X-ray, endoscopy, ultrasound, etc.
You do not need to worry, babies aged 2 days who have black stools are often caused by meconium which can become a normal stool color in the next few days. The existence of an IV procedure usually helps medical personnel to facilitate the administration of drugs through blood vessels or there are considerations of certain medical conditions that require the doctor who treats your baby to re-infusion. In this case, consult and discuss with a pediatrician who has directly examined the condition of your baby. Because in determining the condition of the baby in good condition or not, it must be based on direct examination and a thorough evaluation.
So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
