Why is my one year old pooping so watery and yellow? He doesn't seem sick or anything he's been acting like he usually does.

Possible dietary: Change. It is not uncommon for BM's to become loose if a toddler is drinking more than 4 oz of juice a dat, eating a lot of fresh fruit, or sometimes from lactose intolerance when switiching from formula to milk. I agree that most viral gastroenteritis is usually associated with vomiting or loss of appetite, but not always. Yellow/ green stools occur from rapid transit time from eating to BM ...Read more

Hi, My baby is now 1 year old and poops after every meal/drink (almost 5 times a day) the consistency of the poo is normal. Is it normal?

Can be: There is a basic process called the gastrocolic reflex. It is a wave of stimulation that sends a "move on" message to our gut after we take a volume of material into our stomach. The reflex may or may not trigger an emptying, but it is part of normal digestive action. You possibly reduce the frequency of emptying by adding some cereals or bananas to the diet.Plums/prunes/apple juice give more stools ...Read more

Good: Good for you for knowing that black-colored stool can mean that there may be bleeding in the stomach or small intestine. Now that being said, that is not the only reason for a black stool - it's just the most concerning.

Benign causes of black stool to rule out first before seeking care are: black licorice or other black foods, blueberries or other dark blue foods, iron supplements or multivitamins with iron, or pepto-bismal. All of these can cause black stool.

Another reason for your child to have black stool caused by blood, but of less concern is if he had a nosebleed a few hours before the black stool. Children (and adults) sometimes swallow a lot of blood with a nosebleed and that can also affect stool color.

If your child has not been exposed to any of these and has continued to have black stool, he should be seen by his doctor. His doctor may want you to bring a stool sample to the appointment for testing to look for blood and/or other causes.
