  • My son would get pale yellow poo's usually almost diarrhea like. His doc just said it was a virus and if it goes on longer then 2 weeks to be rechecked.

  • My youngest has this regularly. I think if he gets too much cows milk it colors his poop lighter. I wouldn't worry... I actually don't worry about it.

  • There was a girl I used to watch and started watching her at 9 months and at 12 months she was switched to whole milk and her poops did the same thing. Her mom talked to her pedi who said it was totally normal and it only lasted for maybe a month.
