Hi.Usually this indicates either an chronic infection like amoebiasis or a digestive problem as you said like intolerance or any food allergies.I suggest get a stool examination done and also ultrasound examination of the abdomen as a start. It might require an evaluation. I suggest going to your paediatrician keeping in mind what foods are triggering and what is the circumstances in which you feel the stools are more. Regards.

Frequency of defecation varies from person to person. In your child the ht &weight is within normal range. There are no signs of dehydration or malabsorption. The problem is only with habit formation. Try to feed him small quantities more frequently. Don't force feed your child. Try to toilet train him. Regards
