  • My 2 year old goes at least once a day, if not more. My 1 year old used to only go about once a week, but now that he doesn't get diary he poops 3-4 times a day. He has a milk protein allergy and getting diary constipates him and makes him super gassy, he is miserable if he gets diary.

  • My 4 y/o goes at least 1-2 times a day, but my 2 y/o was having issues for awhile where she would only go a 2-3 times a wk, & it wasn't a pleasant experience for her when she did go. Was going to call the dr. but for the last week or 2 she's been going every other day if not every day, & it seems to have softened up... so relieved! Felt so bad for her. Every kid is different, but it could be his diet. You might wanna call the dr. just to see, but as long as he's going, & isn't in pain, or it isn't really hard/ runny when he goes, it might just be how his system works....

  • I'd check with his doctor. Does he have any discomfort when going? Every kid is different, but I'd be concerned if mine only pooped a few times a week.
