    Default 5 week old loose stools gritty texture

    Last week my 5 week old started getting watery stools, they are yellow but have a sandy gritty texture. Its like wiping beach sand off her bottom! anyone experienced something like this. She is still gaining weight well??

    As a mom of food allergic kids, I tend to see everything through that filter, so this may be totally off for your situation. Hopefully it is! My only experience with sandy poop has been in the context of celiac or gluten intolerance.

    Thank you! The only gluten I eat is in sprouted grain tortillas but i will cut that out and see if it helps Did any of your kids have it at such a young age? Also we have both been on probiotics trying to get rid of thrush not sure if that could cause it.

    Neither of my older kids reacted with sandy stools, but both of them were definitely reacting to the gluten in my diet by that age. We are hoping that our newest one will not have food issues.
