1 Bump

My 13 month old son poops 4-5 times a day. Is it normal? Though the consistency of all the poops seems normal to me. Neither does he seems to be fussy or irritated. But the count do bother me. His weight, though on the lower side but is in normal range.

  • It is actually healthy even as adults to poop after every meal.....however, full cream may be a lot for him to handle.....

  • That is the way it is suppose to be. Eat. Poop. Our digestive systems are so screwed up from bad food and not enough exercise that we forget.

  • I think booklover is correct, sounds like he is eating pretty healthy, I wouldn't worry !

  • I poop after every meal. In with the new, out with the old! It's they way our digestive system is supposed to work.

    A note on the full cream milk - unless you are trying to raise a baby cow, there is no need for full cream milk. He is a 20lb baby human with far less caloric needs than a 150lb baby cow. Just think about that before you buy your next gallon of milk
