My almost two and a half year old toddler lately has poop that is horrible to deal with! It is the consistency of muffin batter and really sticky. We have a fight almost every time we change a poopy diaper because to clean him we need a lot of wipes to scrape this poop off his bum and *ahem* other areas. I want to know if I can change his diet to help this, or if not solutions that will help during diaper changes. My mum has mentioned that this type of poop will make potty training a struggle also. I am also wondering if this points towards some sort of diet deficiency?
Other useful info:
he is regular and had a bowel movement almost every day
he does not have diarrhea and is not constipated
he eats alot of fibre (whole grain everything plus fruits and vegetables)
he eats very little meat (his choice)
Help me get back to "nice" poop!
