It seems like an awful lot to me...

My 13 month old poops about 5 times a day. *Every* day.
Normal or what?
How many times does your baby poop in a day?

  • Normal, he has a great digestive system. My youngest is like that. Now that she is potty trained I swear she does not pee on the toilet without going number 2 as well. So quite a bit in one day. As long as it is not loose all of the time then it is ok.

  • Mine all pooped that much at 13 months but were still nursing, so they tended to have looser more frequent stools. We cloth diaper though so it isn't as expensive for us to have extra diapers, just a little extra laundry! If he is growing and the poops are complete liquid or causing rash I wouldn't worry. It is definitely better than a constipated baby!

  • It would all depend on what he eats. But he could bind himself up and not know it cus' kids' play so hard that going to the bathroom is too tedius for them cus' all they want to do is play and kids won't wait as you know I'm sure. But otherwise, if he eats things that have alot of fiber in it then he will poop alot.

  • All 3 of my kids pooped 3 - 5 times a day at that age. They were all still breastfeeding. I think it's normal.
