I know mum's net isn't a medical site but we've tried our go. .just wondered if anyone else has had the same thing.

Has she been checked for coeliac? My dd was like this and her bloods came back positive. Some blood tests will be negative but they can do a biopsy.

Msqueen33 yes the tests covered a wide spectrum including coeliac..what would a biopsy do?

Could be just 'toddler diarrhoea' which they grow out of. I think it's advised to increase fat and lower fibre to help. Also avoid fruit juices

They'd see if there was damage to the gut. It wouldn't be pleasant though. Thankfully my two it showed in just blood tests.

My ds has this, it's been put down to toddler diarrhoea. He grows and gains weight well, and it doesn't bother him, so it doesn't bother me.
