It's Okay: You've changed your diet, you are eating more. Let your gut do its thing. Probably you are drinking more dairy (lactose intolerance) or you are eating more protein.

Can be: Breast fed kids can go every feed or once a week. A bottom rash is common & may or may not be related. Some kids do react to bovine products in their mom's diet, so a week off all dairy could help you decide if it's an issue. Same with the egg. ...Read more

Suggest...: If your bm looks like toothpaste then it must be thin and white? If you had oral contrast for an x-ray recently that might explain the white color. Blood in the stool is clearly not normal either. I would suggest you see your doctor with these symptoms to find an explanation. Good luck! ...Read more

Flat stools are not unusual with bowel irregularity and mushy stools are the result of laxatives. If you have further concerns, consult a gastroenterologist for evaluation and advice about a bowel management program. ...Read more

Bile acids break down into potent carcinogens, if transit time is more than 24 hours, bathing the colon and lower intestines with cancer-causing poison. Keep your bowels moving regularly, and avoid colon cancer. ...Read more
