Does fluid and stool filled loops in small bowel w abnormal gas pattern w no inflammation or obstruction a sign of ileus?
Possibly: Ileus refers to disruption in normal propulsive activity of the GI tract. The bowel dilates with gas and stool and there is no evidence of bowel sounds when auscultating the abdomen. Present usage restricts the term to disruptions caused by the failure of peristalsis, rather than by mechanical obstruction usually induced by a parasympathetic response due to surgery, infection or medications ...Read more

Air fluid levels: Are a classic finding in obstruction. Too much stuff in the bowels and that pattern of collection implies nothing is moving. ...Read more

Maybe ok; inform Dr.: Babies older than a week have yellowish poops with the thickness of mustard or thick spaghetti sauce. Breastfed babies have looser poops. Formula-fed babies have firmer poops. Poop gets darker, with brown/green colors blended in, and also gets firmer, as a baby gets older. A healthy, happy baby who gets mucousy or sticky poop less than once a month is likely normal, but parents should tell the dr. ...Read more
Can be normal: Mucus in the stool can be a normal variant of healthy stool. Many infections can cause mucus as well but this is usually accompanied by diarrhea.

Usually normal: Usually greenish stool is a function of what a baby is eating and not necessarily a sign of disease. If the baby is acting in a normal manner, afebrile, eating, sleeping, and urinating well, there is no need to worry. More infomation about your child's age, diet, and status would be helpful. ...Read more
Normal: This is common. As long as she is eating fine, not vomiting, no fever, not to worry. If it continues, the baby should have a weight check to make sure she is taking enough calories, since insufficient calories can cause a decrease in stools. Assuming that you are nursing, sometimes dairy in your diet can also cause constipation. If it continues and her weight is fine, consider stopping dairy. ...Read more

My child has a suppository that I do not think is dissolving. He has not stooled yet after 1 2 hours. When should I remove it?
White as in "white": The color of stool comes from liver secretions. If the liver is not functioning or its ducts are blocked, then the child will have white (acholic) stools. This rare condition (biliary atresia) is unlikely in a 20 mos old who would have been noted to be ill from infancy. If the baby is well, then the color of the stool likely represents her diet. Too much milk, not enough meat/veg/grains/fruit. ...Read more
Diet and exercise: An old computer term, "garbage in, garbage out" sort of applies. Much of the modern U.S. Diet tends to cause constipation: fried foods, cheese, white breads & pastas, white rice, red meats, sweets, bananas, excess milk, & more. Avoid or limit these foods. Instead, use fresh veggies, fruits, white meats, lots of water, whole grain cereals/breads/pastas, brown rice. Exercise/activity helps, too. ...Read more
Normal.: If there are no other symptoms, any shade of green, yellow or brown is normal for a baby's stool. ...Read more
Pretty common: The greenish color in stool is the breakdown product of the bile when it has not been in the gut long enough to go through a change to yellowish or brown. It is normal as is the loose consistency. Some digested material will take on a darker tint than others & the germs in the gut will also impact the final product. I'd ignore the whole issue. ...Read more
Any: Any long term change in your stooling habits should be brought to the attention of your doctor since it can indicate an underlying disorder.
