why's my DD pooping so much lately?

my dd used to poop every 2 days while exclusively on bm, now shes 8 months old and has recently been pooping 3-4 times a day for the past 2 weeks with each time being a small nugget. She started on solids at 6 mos. We've been feeding her pretty much the same things.. so I guess it can't be a certain food that's making her poop so much? Any ideas?

  • Sounds to me just by the type of poop, that she could be a little dehydrated. Try to get more fluid in her diet. Other than that.. pooping a few times a day is just as normal as pooping every other day, more normal in fact.

  • Her tummys getting used to different foods. My son does the same thing. I've been told it is very healthy. Ask your peds if you are that concerned.

  • I agree that it sounds like some dehydration. Baby needs more fluids to wash things out better.
