Hi welcome to health care magic........
No amoxicillin does not cause any discolouration of the stool.

Welcome to healthcare magic forum...
Well, amoxycillin does not stain the stools pink...On second thoughts are you sure the pink liquid in the diaper is stools and not urine??? It is very possible, that it is pink or red coloured urine in the diaper, though that is also not because of the drug...I would advise you to be more watchful regarding the pink being stools or urine and whether it is pink or red...Most of the times, red diluted in normal urine or when adsorbed in the diaper is perceived as pink. If u agree that it might be red and might be urine, i would advise u to get the urine tested for routine analysis and a urine dipstick done. It will tell you immediately if it is blood in the urine...Kindly see your pediatrician with the reports, check the blood pressure too....Do not overlook if symptoms persist.
I am always available to answer your queries in the best possible way...
Bye take care....
