This stool chart was developed to help doctors to talk about the shape and type of poop, or stools.
Ideally, a child’s bowel movement resembles type nos. 3 or 4 and passes easily without being too watery.
Stool that looks like types 5, 6 or 7 are likely signs of diarrhea.
Poop that looks like type 1 or 2 is likely a sign of constipation.
