Not really: Most likely related to diet. Lots of fruits, especially fruits that begin with a "p" will make you poop.

My toddler ate curried rice with green onions & stir fried vegetables with ginger.His balls became red after poop & painful on touch.What should I do?
Possible irritation: Poop can often be very irritating to the skin. If the redness is limited to his scrotum following his poop, that is probably the cause. I would wash him with mild soap and water and use a moisture barrier such as vaseline or desitin on the red areas. If the irritation persists, plan on seeing his pediatrician in the morning. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Bright red or dark red/black pooh would be of concern as this is a sign of milk allergy. Iron can change the color of pooh to black which is not a problem. As the child is well green is no problem. It is not related to stress as long as there is no diarrhea stomach pain. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

It sounds like it "could just be him". As long as he has no other symptoms and he is growing well there is no need to worry about the consistency of his stools. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Is it safe for toddler to eat his poop. He ripped his diaper off and went away and pooped. I don't know if he ingested any.
He'll be OK: While we certainly don't condone this practice, it is likely not going to hurt him. The bacteria in poop are in your gut anyway. Just make sure you brush his teeth well tonight as these bacteria are not usually in your mouth. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
