Now, is it "sandy" or kinda "flakey sandy". When I worked in daycare there was a young biy(2ish) who regularily had flaky gritty poops. Really hard to clean! Anyways...it turned out that he generally ate a lot of oat cereals in the a.m..

If eating sand isn't the culprit, it might be something in here diet. Not an allergy perse, just the way a particular food gets processed in larger quantities.

Good Luck!

In both of my kids, pears and blueberries both cause fine, sandy poop (purple-y blue sand in the case of blueberries, LOL).

Happy mumma to Mr. S (7) and Ms. D (9) .

dd has these all the time. anything with lots of grains give her these.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
