Light colored poop in toddler???

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
The past 3 bowel movements ds (28months) has had are extremely light in color. Like a light beige color. What could this be? When I look this up online it says it is a sign of liver disease, but he doesnt have any of the other symptoms they list. He is acting like a normal healthy child. The only change in his diet I can think of is we switched from Silk brand soy milk to powdered soy milk recently, but I dont see how that could make a difference. Im really concerned and he doesnt have health insurance till August. Any experience with this???

I notice huge changes in poop from any dietary changes. Before I did anything else, I'd switch back to your old brand of soymilk and see what happens.

I'd love to see these responses, my daughter frequently has this lately, i'd call it about peanut in colour...it worries me. She is sick right now but this has happened before this illness....hmmm

Well I called his doctor hoping he would give me info on the phone so I wouldnt have to pay to come in and he said as long as it isnt white and chalky not to worry about it. I hope he's right. I switched his soymilk back to silk last night so we'll see if that makes a difference today. Keep me updated on your kids as well.

I thought light-colored poop past EBF age was usually a sign of low-iron.

Does he have gas, maybe he's not digesting it fully.

Bile production is what effects poop color:
