Do you have any references on this I can take to the GI specialist? We're suppose to go in May for our next weight check.

Two days ago my dd had a peanut butter sandwich with whole wheat bread. The next morning her poop was good. The one after & the one this morning was icky and had a funky smell. I think I'm freaking myself out. This is so frustrating. My older dd was about the same height, but 2lbs heavier at a year. I also have an aunt who's allergic to wheat among other things. She hasn't been test for celiacs. I told her to mention it to her allergist.
