Q.

poo!

hi doc, my 12 month old has for the last few days been having really pasty, almost white poos, is this normal? I can't think that there has been any change in diet. He was on antibiotics about a week ago for 10 days when he was ill. thanks

This is not normal. It may be a reaction to the recent antibiotic course.Give him Reuteri drops daily for 10 days. If there is no improvement in his stools ask your paediatrician to see him.
