  • How old is your baby? It can be very normal, especially for a breastfed baby. Every baby is different, and if this is normal for your baby, then yes, it's normal! =)

  • yes ma'am. ...i remember my first baby. i would change her then nurse her and everytime. never failed she would poo again during that feeding. i was always like i jsut changed you 5 mins ago. i learned to go ahead and finish nursing then change her again.

  • Yes, especially for a breastfed baby. My youngest son would poop EVERY FEEDING for the first couple of months. He'd be pooping WHILE I was nursing him, which was interesting, LOL!

  • I breastfeed my son and he poos twice most of the time during feeding, it's normal. I go thru diapers like water.

  • How old & how do you feed? My kids all pooped every time they had breastmilk (from the tap or the bottle), but once we started supplementing with formula they slowed down just a bit, like one poop every 2 feedings. After a couple of months or they were off the breast it slowed down more yet.
