  • Hold on...your baby is one week old, and only goes potty once a day? You mean goes #2 once a day, & has maybe 5 wet diapers a day? Are you formula feeding? If you're breastfeeding that doesnt sound like enough poopy diapers...if you're formula feeding, once a day sounds right. Baby should have a dirty diaper about every 3-4 hrs

  • I still use the bathroom up to 6 times in 24 hours, isnt that normal? So even after the child is potty trained, he/she will still use the bathroom often...and wont dirty diapers. Ive heard of people potty training kids as young as 12 months, but that sounds foreign to me since all 4 of my kids potty trained around 2-3 yrs.

  • At that age my NB had a #2 every day, several times. Almost every diaper change. Now at 2 months not so much. I bottle feed.
