  • it sounds a lot more than what my dd had at 13 mos. I think her max was 2 poopy diapers a day and that was if I gave her apple juice.

  • I wish... my son struggles to have rabbit pellets maybe once a day - we are working on that though, but as long as he feels well and no issues from it, it might be good amount for him

  • I would ask the doctor. Unless you are changing him before he's "finished", I don't think he should be going the much EVERY day. Once in a while, maybe. But not daily. Is he still gaining weight?

  • My son is 13 mos too, and he has around 4 or 5 a day, seems like every time he eats it pushes along the last meal! At his check up the doctor seemed to think it was normal. some mushy some turdy. He eats a lot of vegetables and fruit, as long as it's not diarreah and he doesn't seem to be having cramps with his bowel movements it's probably not a problem (except for the diaper changer)

  • My 14 month old has 2-3 BMs each day (on average). Your son's bowel habits sound normal.
