Is is a food allergy that causes my 3yr old to have sandy poop?After she goes, I have to scrap it off and give her a bath.
What do you think it is from?

i was going to ask that. my dd eats crayons and sand, and it makes her poop gritty and hard to get off

Now, is it "sandy" or kinda "flakey sandy". When I worked in daycare there was a young biy(2ish) who regularily had flaky gritty poops. Really hard to clean! Anyways...it turned out that he generally ate a lot of oat cereals in the a.m..

If eating sand isn't the culprit, it might be something in here diet. Not an allergy perse, just the way a particular food gets processed in larger quantities.

Good Luck!

In both of my kids, pears and blueberries both cause fine, sandy poop (purple-y blue sand in the case of blueberries, LOL).
