Should I be concerned about a 2 year old toddler with pale yellow bowel movements?


Answer by  emhaskey (685)

Notify your pediatrician about any bowel movement changes. Yellow poop can be a sign of gastro-esophageal reflux, an intestinal bacteria, or not enough bile production. A decreased bile production occurs with inflammation of the gall bladder, hepatitis, cirrhosis, gallstones, and some medications.

Yes, a pale yellow color of stool could be associated with serious diseases such as GERD, digestive condition. gall bladder problems (such as gallstones. You might need to check your toddler's diet as well, try changing it an see if he still passes pale yellow stools.

Most likely this is nothing to be concerned about. It probably has to do with what the child is eating. Watch out for other symptoms, like the child having stomach pain, constipation or diarrhea. In these cases you should take them to see a doctor because it could mean somthing worse is going on.


Answer by  Midnyt (26)

Pale yellow bowel movements are not necessarily cause for concern. This is likely due to the specific diet the toddler is fed. If you, as the caretaker of the toddler, have concerns about the color of the child's bowel movement, it is recommended that you alter his or her diet and see if this changes the color of the movement.

Could be nothing. Or it could be amoebic dysentery, liver disease, or even the inability of the digestive system to absorb fats. Worth having the toddler checked, just in case.

Bowl movements reflect what we have ingested.I wouldn't be too concerned about it being yellowish. Many of the dyes that are in foods and drinks can cause this.

That should not be a problem, it is probably his diet. Stool will change color because of the type of food being eaten.
