Very pale poo, off food, grumpy, sleepy 16 month old

My DD has been off her food and has had foul smelling pale stools for the last few days. She is also very grumpy and has slept quite a bit more than usual, this could be teething though.

Has anyone else experienced this and know what it is?

sounds like a stomache upset, plenty of fluids and rest.
hope she feels better soon.

Thanks joosey, me too!

She vomited her morning milk yesterday as well, forgot about that as it was so hideously early in the morning.

I made the mistake of googling and it came up with all sorts, will keep an eye on her.

what colour is her urine?

Ewe Mon 27-Jul-09 12:20:29

Normal colour, well, I haven't noticed it being any darker.

Are the poo's a putty colour?

Ewe Mon 27-Jul-09 12:42:21

Yeah I guess so, a pale beige type of colour.

This type of colour - dulux link, not poo!

Just spoken to nursery and she has eaten some food today and seems ok, if a bit clingy.

Mine both had a hideous bug last week with a little vomiying and lots of pale, stinking poos (which leaked alot)

And Ewe you are awfu; some poor mner is going to have painted their lounge that colour and will now remind them of shit grin

Putty poo's, sleepy and off food can indicate liver problems. If you notice any jaundice in the skin and/or eyes, see a doc asap.

But, like littleducks said it can also be a side effect of a stomach bug.

Just checked, looks fine to me but will keep an eye on it, thank you ilike!

Sorry to anyone who has an almond white house blush Hope you and yours are all better now ld, it's rubbish. Hoping our holiday next week will help us all feel a bit better We've had a real run of it recently.
