My 2 year old has never had solid stools. They range from really watery to pasty. My doctor says some kids just don't have solid stools but it is making potty training harder. I also do not believe this is just normal. The stools are often extremely foul smelling. We are attempting to rid his diet of all milk products. He does not drink milk, no cheese, yogurt, ice cream, etc. I just received lunch menu's from his school and I am going through them to determine what might be made with milk. If we still have a problem what else might he be allergic to that would cause diarrhea?
note: I know he has a milk allergy or intolerance because when as he drinks milk or eats a dairy product he get diarrhea within an hour possibly two for cheeses and yogurt.
