My son has the same problem with (wet runny stools). We found out he is allergic to gluten (wheat)...celiac disease. Try taking your child off gluten for 1 month and if his stool starts to harden you are on the right track. It took my wife and I three years and endless doctor visits to figure it out. I wish you luck getting to the bottom of it.

I would be happy to attempt to answer any questions about general pediatric topics, either medical issues or behavioral issues. This would include all the various questions one receives in a busy pediatric practice. I`m a board certified pediatrician in northern Michigan and have been in practice for over 15 years. I enjoy the teaching role I have in our practice and would enjoy the opportunity to help others with their pediatric problems.
