Re: Greasy Stool?
Feb 5, 2007
Shiny -- as if oil was poured over it. When DS was on formula, his tended to smell like feta cheese (sorry tmi) and was almost a creamy, fluffy consistency.

Looser stools. "not well formed"

There's also the float test -- now that DS is potty trained, if he's malaborbing, his poo tends to float and sometimes it looks as if there's an oil slick on top of the water.

No family history here. Does he taste salty? When you kiss him on the forehead, do your lips taste salty? DS has more bowel issues, because he's pancreatic insufficient and requires digestive enzymes; however, he also has one of most common mutations, too.

I'd also heard that breast milk actually has enzymes in it, so the stools of bf babies aren't as bad as formula fed babies. That's apparently not the case with you. But I've heard from a couple of people that when they started whole milk or formula, there were increased problems with loose stools.

If you feel things just aren't right. Push for additional testing.
