My 15mo always has soft poo, it’s never formed at all, it often has undigested food in it. He has a good, varied diet so I don’t think it’s that. It nearly always comes out of his nappy (have tried different sizes and brands) and its about 3 times a day sometimes more.
When he had his 12month check up with a student HV I asked her about it (showed her his nappy too) and she said it can be normal and lacking any other symptoms don’t worry.
I’m still worried about it. Even more so that the nursery he attends 2 mornings a week always mention his soiled nappies as loose and they must see a lot of different baby’s/toddlers poo.
@Cornettoninja I should have added, I’ve cut out fruit for 3 days and it didn’t make a difference. He doesn’t drink any milk, has some in porridge, some cheese and some plain yoghurt- I’m worried about cutting these out as I know they’re important at this age. I could try but I was thinking if it was an intolerance he would have some discomfort and he doesn’t seem to.
Everything I’ve read online says there may be a food digestion issue but I know dr google isn’t great!
@dementedpixie the only foods he has on the list of foods to limit are; peas, sweet corn, wholemeal bread and pulses. Not excessive amounts, although I suppose I could cut them out completely to see if it makes a difference.
We had this with DS2. Never had a solid nappy until 2 years plus. Lots of tests, blood and stool, lots of investigations but in the end it was put down to, as other posters have said, toddler diahorrea. Sorted itself by about 2.4 and he was toilet trained at 2.6. It’s a whole lot easier now!!
