I'll keep this short...
My daughter is 3 1/2 and for 2 years, she has had yellow or white stools 9 out of 10 times she has a bowel movement. The 1 time is typical in color. They are not hard or soft and don't seem to cause her any pain. She goes between 1 and 2 times a day, so the frequency isn't unusual.

The dr told me that nothing was wrong and she was fine. I talked to a friend of mine who is a naturopathic doctor and he suggested to take her off of wheat to see if it would make a difference. It didn't. It only aggravated an already picky eater but we continued to do a no wheat and low sugar diet for 2 months. Throughout this time, her doctor continued to say that she was fine and we are doing this unnecessarily.

I'm writing this because we live in a very small town and don't have many doctors to choose from and now my daughter is having a lot of stomach aches. She isn't eating well and her stool currently is yellow. I need some help!
