    Default Pale poop?

    I'm taking my toddler to the GP this afternoon but just wondering anyone has any ideas about the colour of my 17 month olds poo?

    She has been having pale poos for close to a week now, they are large and sometimes 3 times a day. Her appetite has plummeted and perviously she has always been a fantastic eater now she seems to eat foods and be disgusted in the taste (foods she has always eaten). She seems tired a lot, and her glands are always swollen on the back of her head. She's lost a bit of weight and is almost refusing to drink any water at all. Thankfully she is still breastfed 3 times a day otherwise she wouldn't be having any fluids. I'm a bit lost..

    I had put it down to teeth as she seems to be getting 3 molars and just got 2 other teeth the last few days but something doesn't feel right.. Any ideas?

    If she's not feeling well, so just eating a little bit of plain food and drinking (breast)milk, then her poos may be pale as a direct result of that. So possibly a side effect of being unwell/sore teeth rather than a symptom.

    DS is a fussy eater and it gets worse when he's not well. Then his diet goes very 'white' (bread, yoghurt, banana, porridge, milk) and his poos a pale tan coloured then. They go darker once he starts on more foods and less milk again.

    Pale stool and food aversion etc can be signs of coeliac as well. They won't even tests for that until it's been going on a while, if it continues they will start by trying to rule out bugs first.
