17 month old toddler boy. 5-10 frequent bowel movements past 2-3 weeks. Ranges from diarrhea to solid. Tried probiotic for kids no better. ?
Toddlers diarrhea: Your child has whats known as toddlers diarrhea. It may be caused from drinking juice. Juices contain fructose or sorbitol which are sugars that cause diarrhea in toddlers.

Hi , can I take ornof for stomach infection , having loo for 4-5 times a day .stool is solid ,semi solid not loose motions?
Most acute diarrheal: illnesses in modern countries are caused by viruses. Antibiotics may prolong symptoms by killing off healthful bacteria. Most bacterial infections (Salmonella, Shigella, e.Coli & Campylobacter) resolve without antibiotic treatment. Instead of Ornof, I recommend fluids (water, sports drinks, broth) and anti-diarrheal meds like loperamide. Ask your pharmacist what s/he recommends. Dr. Anne ...Read more
Foul smelling, muddy and semi-solid, semi formed stools for the past 7-8 months. Ultrasound abdomen perfectly fine, but no respite despite taking meds?
Need more testing.: An ultrasound will not tell us if something is going on with your intestinal tract, which your symptoms would suggest. If your symptoms have not relented despite medications, then a new investigation would be wise - blood testing, CT of the abdomen, EGD, colonoscopy, capsule endoscopy, stool studies. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My baby 10 month old baby passing out 5 t 6 times stool a day from last 15 days is it normal ? stool is soft and various colors
Observation: Your 10 month old baby has more frequent stools for 15 days. Your baby's stool is "soft and various colors". Changes in stool patterns in infants have numerous causes such as introducing new foods and infections. Minor viral head colds can also be responsible. The absence of fever, a good appetite, and lack of irritability is a good sign. See your doctor if fever or persistence beyond 3 weeks. ...Read more
Baby constipation: My first question is about what you are feeding your two month old baby. Certainly a breast fed baby should not be constipated. Formula fed babies often do become constipated. Is your baby getting enough fluids? If you are nursing at all, I recommend you increase your nursing or pumping to increase your milk supply for your baby. ...Read more

Complicated GI toddler peg tube , one week on neocate juinor with prebiotic. Stools are now very dark , smelly , and semi loose. Normal ?
Underlying condition: You obviously have a very complex toddler you are dealing with. I would be more suspicious of child's underlying problems and/or medications for the stool findings. While the neocate & probiotics could account for the loose stools, very dark and smelly is unusual but not impossible with these. Very dark makes me want ot check for blood in the stool. Also consider neocate with fiber instead. ...Read more

I've taken my 6 year old son to several specialist moving he's bowls every 2 weeks no diagnoses ?
Work with one doctor: If a child has a chronic problem such as "pooping only every 2 weeks", the parents can get opinions from 3 pediatric gastroenterologists (stomach doctors). The parents should select the doctor they feel most comfortable with, and work with that doctor for a few months. The doctor can clear the bowels and do tests to determine a diagnosis and treatment, over several weeks, or sooner if necessary. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

GI PROBLEM: I think that after two weeks of consistently unusual bowel movements, you should make an appointment to see your child's doctor. They may not have any specific recommendations or order any specific tests, but two weeks worth of symptoms would certainly justify a face to face examination. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Soft stools that come out in 1 piece or a few smaller pieces, look like number 4 on stool chart, sometimes fecal urgency, no blood, no pain, several years now, go avg 3 times a day. 22 yr old male?
Not a big problem: Most people have been on antibiotics within tue past 2 or 3 years and don't have the optimal balance of "friendly" bacteria in their intestines. Sometimes this can cause mild to moderate GI distress, and sometimes more significant symptoms. A good probiotic, kambucha, or other foods that restore balance in friendly bacteria is very important. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 9 month old is breasted still and eats solid food. He tried 60 mls of formula 3 nights ago and now has fluffy smelly yellow poos 10 x day. Help?
Formula and diarrhea: Formulas are either soy based or milk based and your baby may be allergic to the basic underlying protein of the formula. Would stop that formula and see if resolves, May also be coincidental virus/ infection but if no fever that is less likely. Call the pediatrician today. Keep the baby hydrated with breast milk, water. ...Read more
