Hi and welcome to Healthcare magic.Thank you for the query.
Your child needs more detailed work up. It can indicate various diseases or can be just normal part of development. You should rule out some gastroeneterologic diseases such as coeliac,food alergy or enzyme defficiencies. There is no need to be concerned,but further tests are necessary.
Wish you good health. Regards
