  • You def. should make a Dr's appt. The distended belly is a clue there may be something else going on. Better safe than sorry.

  • Has she been eating a bunch of cereal like Cheerios?

    My kids have all had the sandy light colored poop and it seems like it was always when they were eating a lot of dry type cereal. My kids are all fine and have never had issues other than the weird poop.

  • nope she hasnt eaten anything like that. Ive racker my brain trying to think of food that would do this and cant. Her poop is creamy but ALLLL OF IT is sandy. Today she took her diaper off when it had poop & i had to give her a bath when i washed her bum i could feel the poop and it felt like i picked up a fistful of sand at a playground

  • I would at least call the doctors office and tell them, see what they say. There might be some underlying issues.
