Can breastfeeding mask malabsorption issues. My seventeen month old child's poop has lots of undigested food in it also hasn't gained weight in months?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Can't tell for sure

but this is a serious issue which should be evaluated by your pediatrician because malnutrition may permanently impact your child's life.
It does sound like that he has a digestive disorder.
