This is a weird question, I know. My 3 month old's poop has always had little "chunks" in it (it's mostly liquid, though). I think she may have a dairy allergy, and I've been avoiding dairy for the last week. The past day or two her poop has been pretty much just liquid with few or no "chunks"...so today I started wondering if the "chunks" were normal, or if they could have been caused by her allergy if indeed she has one.

Chunks are normal. Often called curds.

The best description I've ever heard is "It looks like cottage cheese mixed into mustard". Yum!

A mix of solid curds and more liquidy parts is perfectly normal.

Never seen any chunks here. Looks like butterscotch pudding before it's completely "pudded".
