Gastroenteritis


There have been several viruses, both the Norovirus (the cruise ship virus) and Rotovirus going around. Both can cause smelly, gross stools that can last a little while. Depending on the age of your baby, a good probiotic and a day or so of Pedialyte may elp return things to normal. However, if there are other symptoms, contact your doc to make sure there isn't a stool bacteria or parasite.

Lactose intollerance


Lactose intolerance causes gas, distension and loose stools. When treated with LF formula your baby should be happy, have much less gas and distension. The stools may still be loose and soft from time to time based on what he also eats. You should be on LF formula not cow milk until he is 1 year old.

Toddler pooping 3 times a day, should I be concerned?

Answered by:
Allergies Allergies Bowel movement Children Diet Feces Food allergies Food allergy Fruit juice Gluten Hypersensitivity Nutrition

Not really


Most likely related to diet. Lots of fruits, especially fruits that begin with a "P" will make you poop. Too much juice will also make us poop frequently as can food allergies- two most prominent being dairy and gluten. Your child sounds normal to me.

Maybe


Assuming your child is growing and developing normally, and eats a diet full of fruits and vegetables, it may be normal for her to have 8 BMs/day. Most US children have 1-2 BM/day. Is this a new pattern? Are they diarrheal or small hard pebbles? Mucus or flecks of blood? This is something you should discuss with her doctor.

Pooh color...


Pooh comes in many colors depending on age and diet. Green is not a problem. The color can change based on the child's diet. 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.

Should be normal


For someone with Cystic fibrosis who has known pancreatic insufficiency, treatment with pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy should lead to normalization of stool consistency & frequency. For untreated patients, CF related malabsorption causes bulky, frothy, oily, exceptionally foul smelling stools that are more frequent and loose/watery (diarrhea-like). There is no characteristic color in CF pts
