    Default White/light colored poop

    Haylee has had white/grey poop for about a week. Tonight she was complaining about her bum hurting and her rectum is really really red. I put some lanolin on it, but was just wondering if the two were related and what could be causing it. Its not diaper rash--she's out of diapers. Thanks!

    White poop may indicate something serious like some problems in liver or gallstones. I would have her checked by her ped.

    Erin - Have you googled this yet?

    The searches I've done so far seem to say that occasional white poops could be diet or an infection (such as a virus). Chronic white poops seem to point towards liver issues.

    I did google. I come up with cystic fibrosis and liver disorders. Its happened before, but never for this long. Usually its a day or 2, but its been much longer this time. I wish I had called the ped today. Its scary, especially with her slow weight gain.

    Hopefully you can talk to the ped tomorrow and hopefully it's nothing.

    IMO always better to check things that are odd or worrysome.

    Keep us posted?

    Has she been tested for gluten intolerance?
    I seem to recall when I was researching that, white/light colored poop could be an indicator.

    Poor you! Keep us updated!

    I called the doctor yesterday morning and she wants to see her, so I made an appointment for when we get home. She had some normal stool yesterday, but some odd too. Just keep us in your thoughts!
