My daughter had a vomit and a white poop

My 19 month daughter had a vomit in the morning and a white poop in the evening on the same day. She has had white poop a few months back too, usually she has it for a few motions and then she is fine. This is happening for the third time now.Could it be just a stomach bug or something else ?

Welcome to Healthcare Magic
This could indicate a gastrointestinal infection but you must also be aware of milk indigestion as another possibility. Kindly get her to a Paediatrician and get her thoroughly examined and tested to rule out infection and get her well hydrated because dehydration is very common in young children and can be dangerous if not treated early.

hello, welcome to HCM. This could be due to a stomach infection which is very common in this age or it could be due malabsorption syndrome. it is required for you to see a pediatrician who can tell you more about it after running some tests. Wish your daughter good health.

my son did the same thing when he was 16 to 18 months old, at the time it freaked me out and the doctor said it might be a parasite, they ran tests but didnt find one.(he might have passed it already). but I was also putting gallons of milk in the freezer sometimes if i had to many in the fridge and this seemed to me to be suspiciously linked with the probblem and when i stopped putting milk in the freezer, the problem stopped. go see ur doc though b/c it could very well be a parasite
