what causes white stools, diarrhea in toddler
What causes white stools, diarrhea in toddler? My thirteen month old has had loose bowels (4-8 times a day) for the past five weeks. This began with what seemed to be a virus, although I stopped nursing and started whole milk around the same time. I am not sure if the milk caused the symptoms or if it really was a virus. I took her to the pediatrician after three weeks of runny, loose bowel movements, and she said give it time. Well, once yesterday and once today she has had very pale, almost white bms with clumps (maybe undigested food?). In between, she had "normal" green/brown diarrhea. I have decided to collect (if it happens again) and take to the pediatrician, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas on what this could be. I am so confused by what my pediatrician says versus my brain telling me that something is not right. I just don't believe that this is what she called a "normal adjustment to whole milk."
