CHALKY WHITE

Your Baby & Toddler - - Newborn -

Stool gets its brown colour from bile, a sub­stance pro­duced by the liver and stored in the gall­blad­der, which is ex­creted dur­ing di­ges­tion. Pale or white stools are quite rare and can be an in­di­ca­tion of a liver or gall­blad­der prob­lem. See your doc­tor right away if you come across this type of poo in your baby’s nappy.
