How often does your 12 month old poop?

This is an odd question, but how often does your 12 month old poop each day? My daughter (still nursing and eating 3 meals a day) poops anywhere between 2-6 times a day! It seems kind of excessive to me, and kind of annoying as I cloth diaper and am constantly rinsing poop into the toilet. She definitely doesn't have the runs, just lots of squishy poo.

  • My son is 3 1/2 now so I can't remember specifically at 12 months but he always pooped a LOT. I remember it being sometimes up to 6 or 7 times a day too. He was breastfed for 15 months. I can't remember if it changed once he was weaned or not. It did eventually slow down though. It's annoying but I don't think it is anything wrong.

  • My daughter pooped like 4-6 times a day around that age and now that she is 17 months she poops about 3-5 times. As long as it is not effecting her weight there is no problem.
