Flat Stools - 3 year old

My 3 year old has just started using the toilet for bowel movements. When he used the bathroom this morning, I noticed that his stools were very flat, normal color and width, just flat. Should I be concerned? Has anyone else experienced this?

Re: Flat Stools - 3 year old

I would just keep an eye on it. If it was just a one time event I wouldn't worry about it, but if he is having any abdominal pain, vomiting or constipation problems or it happens again I would give the pediatrician a call. I think I remember something similar with my daughter while she was toilet training.
