  • ive never seen white poop before but my son has had really light yellow poop before that was almost like playdough consistancy. If it continues and he seems uncomfortable i would just give the dr a call never hurts!

  • Call his doctor asap. They'll advise you what to do, but I'd be concerned.

  • I would call the doc. I was watching Dr. Oz a while back, and the lighter the poo is, it means they are not getting enough vitamins, etc. It was pretty gross when he was talking about it, but good to know.

  • Yes, call your doctor ASAP. It's not a good thing. They'll probably want to do a stool sample....

  • I had the same thing happen when I switched my daughter to milk and I took a dirty diaper into her doc and he said it was because she was drinking too much milk and not getting enough other foods. To be on the safe side you should probably do something similar, or at least have him see a doctor.

  • YOu can call the doctor but most likely it is from the switch to milk.

  • My sons poop was white from 9 mos to currently, He went though lots of tests because his doctor was concerned for his liver. In the end, it turned out my son had an adrenal problem his calsium and phosphate were though there roof. He is doing fine, and its just being monitered :) I'd call your doc just in case though, the test for his liver function is a simple blood draw.
