  • I don't think that he would be considered lactose intolerant based just off of his poops. It is probably nothing but if you are really concerned def call the docs that's what they're there for. GL.

  • He could be constipation.. Is he gassy? My 20 month old DD has this a lot...The water is most likely from him trying to pass the gas around the hard stool...you child's doctor will be able to tell you what you can do to get thing's moving.. If your toddler is lactose intolerant, he may have diarrhea, abdominal cramping, bloating, or gas about 30 minutes to two hours after eating or drinking dairy products or after breastfeeding.

  • i doubt its that, it wouldn't set in this late without prior signs.

    it's probably either diaherra or constipation.. you're doctor can talk more about his diet with you and find out

  • I do not so. It sounds normal. Sometimes they just get tummy troubles.

  • We had to switch my DS to Lactaid once he hit 1 because of this same issue. He had issues as a baby, though, too-had to have the Soy formula.
