Both of my boys (ages 2 yrs and 4 yrs) are experiencing clay colored stools. They both had a stomach bug this past weekend with both vomiting and diarrhea. The 4 year old has stools that are back to normal consistency and regularity except the clay color. The 2 year old has had 2-4 stools/day that are mashed potato consistency and clay colored (normally he has 1-2 solid stools/day). Are clay colored stools normal in children after a stomach bug with vomiting and diarrhea?
