White poop can signify a liver problem. The color of poop is brown because of stercobilin a product of bilirubin breakdown. I really don't mean to scare you, it could be as simple as eating a mozzarella or rice like a pp mentioned, but it if it is consistently white it could mean a bigger problem.
If you search pale stool, or bilirubin, or jaundice you will probably come up with a list of "possible" causes including liver, gallbladder, malabsorption (this is suspicious especially if his stool floats), on and on. I don't mean to be an alarmist. Just look for any other symptoms and try to recall what you have been feeding him.
Next poop wasn't white...hmmm. Dr. called back but I didn't answer the phone in time and didn't want to page him again- my mommy spidey sense stopped going off at that point
He's in daycare during the week, so he must've eaten something weird Friday perhaps... he also drinks a ton of cows milk (who knows- it's white )
Just wanted to say, too much milk can lead to anemia. My DD2 was severally anemic by age three and I didn't learn until I researched on my own that it was from the calcium in milk. Cut her back to one cup a day and the anemia went away on it's own.
I am glad your son seems to be doing better. I have never seen white poop, but I have seen blue, bright green, red, and pink. That Trix yogurt (older kids before I knew better can do some weird things to their poops.
