    I'd be looking into dairy, gluten or fructose intolerances (or fructose malabsorption as it's called) -- it was only after we cut out all fruit, dairy & wheat that my son started having "normal" poo.....& his moods & sleeping vastly improved also!

    Definitely ask the GP if you're worried, but having been through intolerances with DD I've experienced a lot of different poo! I would worry if the poo was very watery, very frequent, green in colour, foamy or there was mucous or blood in the stool. Also if there are any other symptoms like sore tummy, unsettled behaviour, vomiting or reflux.

    DD is almost 3 now and free of intolerances, but her poo sounds similar to your DS. They are fairly soft and mushy but normal colour without any of the above indications. DD has quite a healthy diet and I was told that often means soft stools.

    Is he still in nappies? DD isn't toilet trained yet and I think that makes it look worse as it gets all squished up in the nappy.

    To clarify, I'm talking soft stools not ones that look like diarrhea.

    It's always worth talking to your doctor or a dietitian if you're worried.

    Thank you ladies! You've pretty much hit the nail on the head with what I was expecting. I think I'll book him in Monday morning.

    I have IBS so wouldn't be surprised if he has something similar

    He has no pain or foamy poo, no blood or mucas. Just not formed, sloppy (ewwww)

    Thank you for all being so understanding

    Thanks miss e.

    What did you do to rectify it? Just cut out all dairy?

    We switched to lactose free dairy stuff and haven't looked back! My GP just took a stool sample and tested for a heap of stuff.

    True lactose intolerance is rare and can be tested using a stool sample. A lot of intolerances are diagnosed through elimination. Without any other symptoms I wouldn't worry too much but always worth getting an expert opinion to put your mind at ease.
