    Default Very pale poo

    So DS had some tummy troubles last week and then had runny poos. Not explosive diarrhoea but still... (Sorry) now what worries me is that the colour is getting lighter and lighter (although its solid again). From pale brown to now almost white.
    He's due for surgery on tonsils and adenoids removal tomorrow, plenty if paediatricians there to ask I guess, but Google is freaking me out, anyone had this before???

    My DD did have this when she was really young, 5 months old I think. Her poo was really foul, quite runny and really pale. Never explosivd though! A few babies in mothers group had it at once, I think it was a virus. For us it only lasted a few days.

    Default Very pale poo

    Just updating in case someone has the same issue: paed at hospital said if it has any shade of brown/beige its fine, especially if it returns to normal within up to two weeks. Which in our case it has today
