My baby has been having white stools for 3 days. I took her to the ER and They ran blood tests. Everything came back normal. What is my next step? And what could be wrong?

    You can find a list of causes of white stool in this article :

    It may be related to a disruption in the secretion of bile although it could also be associated with certain disorders of the pancreas, bowels and malabsorption syndromes.

    The ER is only there to rule out any condition that is life-threatening immediately. You should consult with your baby’s pediatrician about this and possibly consult with a gastroenterologist specializing in pediatric conditions.
