Stool color : Stool color can mean a lot if it is persistent. Stool color changes are most often due to diet changes or eating "other" stuff. If your daughter is otherwise healthy I believe you can wait this one out. If you have suspicion of ingesting something inappropriate then the ER. If she has a liver infection as you seem to be thinking the stool will stay pale for longer.
