my kid's white poop
My two-year-old is having frequent episodes of white poop that is soft-formed. Any suggestion of the cause? He has had this off and on before, but this time it has been white for three solid days. Thanks!!
Your kid's poop can be brown, green, blue, yellow, red and all kinds of colors in between, and is usually not cause for concern. It mainly just depends on the types of food being consumed.
White poop, however, only happens if you drink barium, have some sort of liver blockage such as a tumor or gallstones, or just happen to be a bird.
So unless you laid an egg and hatched your son, or are feeding him a diet consisting of barium milkshakes, I suggest you take him to the pediatrician to have this checked out.
Thanks for asking Motherload!
