I guess as moms we are all a bit poop obsessed, right? Recently (for the past month or a bit more) when my 17 month old has a bm, when I clean his diaper (hes mostly in cloth diapers) I've noticed that the poop floats. He's got a pretty normal, healthy diet with a few little treats here and there but not a lot of fast food or anything. He still breast feeds before his naps, before bed, and scattered times in the middle of the night. I do know that my breast milk has real high fat content but I'm not sure if that would have anything to do with it or not. He generally pops every day, once in a while twice a day. Otherwise he seems fine - generally a very healthy kid. Not sure if i should be concerned with calling the pediatrician or not - from what I've read it could be caused by lack of an enzyme that would break down fat. One place I read said it could cause a defiency in certain fat soluble vitamins (i give him a multi every day).
Thankyou in advance for your advice - oh I give him a probiotic daily as well.
