Should I be concerned?

My son is 3 years 3 months. He is a very active, regular little boy. He shows no signs of laziness or problems. Ever since he was a baby he has been irregular. He would go once every three days or so. It was never hard or it never hindered him. Now he goes every two days. It doesn't hurt him, it doesn't bother him, he goes and he's good. On the days he doesn't he's still normal, super active and busy. Some people tell me not to worry, the doctors say he's fine but others tell me I should carry him to get it checked out, so I was wondering any moms out there with this situation and do you worry??

  • He's fine. As long as it doesn't hurt him, have blood or mucus in it, etc. Don't stress. His body may just operate on a different schedule.

  • I would not worry about it, as long as he isn't in pain. Some people just don't go on a daily basis. As long as he is healthy and active and the doctor has told you not to worry, then I would not be concerned.

  • Doesn't sound like a problem to me. That's normal for him.

  • He's just fine. My son is 4 and doesn't go every day either. If he gets to a third day, we add a little more water and/or fruit/veggies to his diet but I don't worry about it.
