pooping lots?

My daughter usually poops once a day, and sometimes skips a day.
But today she's been a little poop machine, 3 already and it's only 5:30.
Is this normal?

She's also extra sleepy...could that be connected?

  • She could be expelling some extra bacteria in her body. If she starts acting funny though, bring her to the doc. Hope this helps! But no, poop only is a problem if its diarrhea (then they have a chance to get dehydrated) or if its bloody. :) Good luck mama!!

  • Sounds normal to me.
    My son still has days where he poops like 6 times and then he'll skip a day.
    Nothing to worry about unless it seems like it's hurting her.

  • Sounds normal to me! My daughter is 17 months and has always from day one pooped at least 3 times a day. It used to be 4-5. I guess she has slowed down some with age. If we could her down to 1 a day I would be ecstatic.

  • My baby usually poops at least once or twice a day, but the other day she pooped three times in two hours. Like 30 minutes apart. It happens. That's why they are called babies.
