  • it depends on what he eats (in my experience). i would give my dd all sorts of fruits and stuff and she would hav runny poop, i started giving her more meats and veggies mainly and it would get better, but only the doctor would know for sure. i hope all goes well :)

  • Poor thing! Could be a dairy allergy I would stop all dairy products for at least a week and see how he does. Dairy is one of the worst foods to eat in my opinion and you can get calcium and vitamin d from many other sources. Don't know what they could be checking for but I would definitly watch his diet.

  • My bet is the doctor is just checking to rule out an intestinal bug that might require treatment (i.e. antibiotics).

  • I was going to ask if you recently started whole milk...that could be the link, as another poster mentioned. Does your LO have any eczema, or gas or mood changes?

  • I gave him whole milk at 12 months and never had any problem. He's ate cheese and yogurts for a long time too with no problem. No eczema, gas, or mood changes either.
