Does your baby poop overnight?

My 9-month old rarely does the overnight poop... which is GREAT. I'm wondering if I've just been lucky? Does your baby poop in the middle of the night? I'm a little hesitant to give him solids too close to bedtime - does it matter? I mean, adults rarely poop at night, so...

  • My son never pooped in the night, except when he was a newborn and strictly on breastmilk. He almost always poops right after breakfast if not before.

  • My daughter always poops around 9am every day. She is 4 months now, but when she was a newborn and I was breastfeeding, she pooped all the time.

  • She has usually has a BM by 9am, and has only gone overnight once or twice since she was about 2 months old. She is 9 months now, and we give her solids about 30 minutes before bed.
