I'm stumped and I hope some wise person here will be able to help me! My barely 2y.o. ds has been having gritty poops for about 2 weeks now. Everything else w/him seems to be normal, but his poops are gritty. (here comes TMI!)
It's finer than sand, but similarly gritty, looks a little like pepper from a shaker, not the grinder, and the gritty stuff is mixed all in the poop. The rest of the poop itself is normal. He's otherwise healthy, no new foods, no big illnesses, no eating sand!
I did call his ped's office and talked to the dr on call. He was totally unhelpful and didn't seem to have any idea what I was talking about or what could be causing it.
He seemed totally unconcerned. *I* however, am not totally unconcerned. I'm not freaking out, it just doesn't seem right. He's never had this before, and neither has his older (4 y.o) brother. He's still nursing, though not that often, usually 4 times a day or so. He's vegetarian and eats very little dairy.
OK, now that I've given all the pertinent (all some not so pertinent!) info, does anyone have any ideas? Anyone seen anything like this in their child??
Please make me feel better! Thanks so much!!
