  • Chalky white poop could indicate that there is no bile from the liver to digest food. Call the doc.

  • If a lot of what she eats pasta and what she drinks is milk...that could be it.

    While it is an indication of a gall bladder issue...if she has no other signs, I would try to do an elimination diet first. Give her water and no milk for a day or two and see if it changes. Or cut back on white foods like pasta and crackers and mashed potatoes.

  • It's probably just what she has (or hasn't) been eating. BUT, to be on the safe side, I'd make her an appointment. My pediatrician always told me if my daughter's poops turned white that's when you'd want to have them checked just to be sure. White, or bloody, that's when they like to check them out.
