Infant. Gray stools. Diagnosed acid reflex. Advice

my son is 10 months old and has had gray stool since an infant its not contant but several enough times for me to start getting concerned. He is not on any medications. i had a doc tell me he has acid reflex, but i really dont think it is acid reflex. i believe it was more of from his musceles just werent strong enough to hold his milk down. he never was a fussy baby and he would just vomit his milk up till we put him on enfamil a.r. and he does have issues with constipation from time to time. i never knew gray stools could be warning of other issues.
