Sandy, gritty particals on toilet bowl w urine? Goes away once drinking water.don't drink alot daily. Urinary tract NML on CT.CMP nml. Dehydration?
Interesting: Glad to hear that your CT and CMP are normal. Dehydration can cause crystals to come out of solution and come out as grit in the urine.

2 mo old baby passes lots smelly farts. Poop mustard yellow, smelly. Sometimes in pain. Formula and breast fed. Tried ovol, gripe, massage. Concern?
Baby poop: What you are describing all sounds very normal. The poop is a reflection of the bacteria in the baby's gut as well as your diet (as you are sometimes breast feeding). Babies often cry when trying to have bowel movements - it's a new thing for them and they have to learn how to relax a sphincter and at the same time are bearing down to push the stool out - they get frustrated/cry - it gets better ...Read more

1 month old, formula feed infant has dark green poop that smells like skunk (sometimes stringy looking)...baby is gassy as well. Is this normal?
Could be: The first thing I would want to make sure is that your child is gaining weight appropriately and thriving. If that is the case, there are numerous things that could be of help, such as different formulas. That decision can be best made with your child's doctor who will know what formula your child is and/or has been on. Good luck. ...Read more

2yo x5 day liquid bm 6+ a day, little food/drink. Acts ok, bm foul smell, vinegary almost? Gas! ped says viral i'm not sure? Now mucous in bm low temp
Likely viral: Most cases of vomiting and diarrhea in children are secondary to viruses. Symptoms include vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and abdominal pain. Symptoms can last for 24 hours or 6-8 days. In my experience, fouls smelling, greenish stools are often secondary to rotavirus. Needs to drink water, pedialyte, or juice diluted with water. See md if lethargic, not drinking, not urinating, blood in stool. ...Read more

Dr put me on cetiphil (spelling) stool softener for my constipation issues. Always full of poop and never feel empty bowels. Stool is ways hard. Why?
18 month baby constant constipation, very hard stools and cries when pooping. The only relief is glycerin. Tried prune juice and veggies nothing works?
Call Pediatrician: Likely just extracts too much water from stool, leading to constipation. Can try apple juice as often better tolerated than prune juice (in quantity needed to help). Ask pediatrician about daily use of MiraLAX (polyethylene glycol) (1/4-1/2 cap in bottle of juice) to help keep stools softer from "above" so glycerin needed less often "below.". ...Read more
