8 month old pooping every hour

He's not sick, no fever,no change in diet. He normally poops once maybe twice a day and yesterday and today he is pooping every hour sometimes less and then he poops more while I am changing him. It's normal poop, not runny at all and normal color. It's just not like him to poop this much. Any thoughts?

  • First thought: that is gonna be a lot of diapers
    Second thought: maybe he has been backed up or is just finally clearing everything out

  • You could always ask his physician just in case.

  • My son was like that as well. If he is breast fed I hear that is totally normal.

  • Have you introduced new food lately?

  • No new food, same old stuff and he is breast fed, he's just never pooped so much in one day! His butt was so sore it was bleeding.
