What should I do to my 13 month old daughter who ate her poop ?

What should I do if my 13 months old ate poop? My daughter is now 13 months old. Yesterday, after changing her diaper i decided to give her some air time. I put her on the floor. in less than five minutes I saw her coming to me with poop all over her including her mouth. She is a very good eater knowing my daughter she my have eaten 95% of that poop. What should I do?

my 13 month old daughter has very hard, very pale stools. Last week they were very pale and very runny. She was on cows milk, but we have since switched to goats milk and lactose free whole milk. Her stools appear to be the same color, just the consistency has changed-now she goes quite often (at least 8 times a day) only passes a little, and cries and shakes the whole time. I m bringing her to the doctor in the morning, but is this something I should do something about tonight?
