My son is 2years 8 months. His stool was yellowish but now is turning dark brown and it is floating. I'd like to know what could be the problem.

I would have him checked out. I don't think the color makes much of a difference. From what I understnd, all of us start out with lighter stools and as we get older and our diets change, the stool becomes darker. However, floating stool indicates that there is a lot of fat in it- which means that his body is not absorbing and digesting the fat he eats as it normally should. If this continues, I would take him to the pediatrician.
