Child has bad smelling, yellow, loose stools. Related to liver?

my 14month old has been passing quite bad smelling, loose yellow pooh over the last 3 days. He was sick last night but has been fine throughout the day. I wondered if this was linked to him teething at the moment but i have noticed this evening his tummy looks quite distended. He has cows milk before bed and eats a normal diet . Could the bowel motions be anything to do with his liver?

its unlikely to be related to liver… it can be a gut infection often bacterial… smelly stools otherwise may be seen in fat malabsorption…
