  • It happens...or it could be a light virus. I am sure she is fine either way. I have had plenty of days of my kids pooping 3-4 times.

    Just make sure you wash your hands well and keep the diaper station cleaned and wiped down if you think it might be a virus, since fecal matter is how a lot of viruses are passed.

  • I agree with the pp. I've dealt with it too. If it doesn't last long and she's not acting sick, I wouldn't worry too much.

  • i'm thinking it's something she ate, drank.

    mine was getting a bit sick because we needed to change our water filter in the fridge. it's got to be something in the diet, because she's old enough to tell you she's not feeling good.

  • I could be something she ate. My little guy has more BMs if he eats sugar or some fruits.
