Pale Colored Poop

Pale stool : Pale stools are most often a reflection of your diet. What you eat is most definitely reflected in your stools.

NOT REALLY: Too much milk intake is not recommended after 1 year of age. They need more solid food. Give the toddler mixed balanced food. From 1 to 2 year, vitamin-d milk, then 2%, 8 ounces 2-3 times daily is enough.
