This is by far the weirdest poo question in history...

But all day long my sons poops smelled like PLASTIC. I mean straight up like plastic, they didn't even smell like poop. It kind of freaked me out. I checked all of his toys and there's no way that he ingested any plastic. Can any foods cause that?? And it was definitely his poops and not his urine. He's 3, btw.

  • Has he been eating crayons? Other than that I have no idea what could be causing his poo to smell like plastic. I would just mention it at his next doctors appointment.

  • When my daughter started eating a bowl of frozen blueberries everyday, her bowel movements turned kind of an irridescent green....
