white stools in baby
by: Anonymous

Hi

Infant formula is known for its dehydrating effects. Babies who are formula fed, are prone to getting constipation. So, yes, I think that white stools in baby could definitely be due to the formula.

My first baby was formula fed too, and he had terrible constipation. As soon as I changed his formula, the colic symptoms, fussiness and constipation subsided.

Can you give more information on eardrops possibly causing white stools? I would like to know where to find more information about those because there is nothing online. Also, can anesthesia cause white stools? Thank you

White stools in baby
by: Anonymous

Hi

Are you referring to these things affecting baby through mom's breast milk?

White stools in babies are usually caused by a blockage of the bile ducts, or it may be caused by liver disease.

In some cases, pale stools are blamed on certain over the counter MEDs or substances that are used in X-rays, such as Barium.

malnourished
by: Tracy

Hi

Babies need a certain amount of vitamins, fats, and nutrients in the form of breast milk or formula up until the age of one or longer if they have not entirely weaned onto solid foods.

Diluted cow's milk will not offer your child what he/she needs to grow and stay healthy. The white stools are most definitely a sign that something is amiss. I assume that it is because your baby is malnourished and struggling to digest the cow milk proteins. Children under the age of 1 should not be given cow's milk at all; their digestive systems cannot yet handle the protein in the cow's milk.

Please talk to a doctor or pediatrician about this. You need to get your baby onto breast milk or formula as soon as possible.
