is this normal?
and what can i do to help his constipation? ive been pushing fruits and oranges he doesn't want a lot of water but I try to give him some

  • White poop can be indicative of having no bile in the system and can be caused by liver,gall bladder or intestine issues. You should really ask your pedi about this.

  • I'd give your pediatrician's office a call and just check this with them. Poop can be lots of different colors without any problem but since you just changed the diet, I'd check and see what they advise.

  • White can also have something to do with not processing the milk well, my daughter had this problem for a while and turns out neither of us can handle pasturized milk, the green (if not eating tons of green foods) would be passing protein says my midwife
