This may be yellow, since there may not be accompanying solid stool. ...Read more

The less germ action the less color change. Loose stools are often a greenish color for this reason. ...Read more

Yellow stools have stoppe but now I feel sick cant get a docs appointment. Still got pain in my back and belly could missing pills be the cause?

My healthy 18 mo old has had pale yellow stools for months. Liver tests were normal. What other tests need done? Ped isn't concerned. Should i be?

Normal baby poop: The first stools a baby make are black meconium. These gradually change to that yellow color. As time goes by, then stools will evolve into the brown color you recognize as normal stools. If you have already been to the doctor, and there is no concern with blood testing; then I would suggest that you adopt a relaxed attitude and let time take care of this one for you. ...Read more
