Does anyone know why my toddlers poop is white? (X Posted in toddlers)

I thought I knew it all.... This is bizarre!

How long has DC had white poop? Has DC had any barium?(this is the only thing I can think of that would cause white poop, unless DC ate some white crayons or some old bones you used for bone broth)

I remember hearing about this a while ago, but don't remember the details. It may be some sort of liver blockage, but I recommend you take DC to a Ped to get them looked at. I don't want to worry you , but white poop in humans is not normal and could be something serious.

We all had white poop one time following a virus. Dr said it was totally normal - body was just getting rid of the virus. Has your DC been sick?

I did want to mention that in the absence of illness, white poop can mean an issue with the liver so if it continues or it has been a chronic thing, I would take him/her to the ped.

White color can be due to poor absorption of fat. Or a virus.

Heres a couple old mothering discussions:

After the body has fought off a virus, the stool can be white for a few times.
