  • I don't know about how much she is going, but if you think hers smells bad you should smell my DD's lol my DD will be 2 on the 11th and she just got potty trained and has been for about a month now and it was achually easy to train her cause you can smell her before she achually has a BM lol I know gross, but true lol

  • It could be the rotavirus. It causes really smelly BM's..

  • its totally normal!! dont worry about it! My DD is 17 months, and she poops on average two to three times a day and she is perfectly healthy! It all depends on their diet, how much they eat, what they eat etc. Everything is fine! =)

  • Yup, normal. My DS poops more when he is teething....BUT....when he poops more, they smell less. I guess it doesn't stay in his system long enough to go "bad" and develop a smell.

  • i have read that with a proper diet, you should poo after every meal.

  • i found that the more milk my son drinks, the smellier his poops are. but i think 2-3 poops is normal.
