Another poop question

So I know you moms have all said that poop every few days is normal...

Lately, we've been pooping once every day. Sometimes twice. Is that normal too?

Yep! My son would poop several times a day for the first 4ish months. Now my daughter only poops once every otherish day at 9.5 weeks! Just depends on baby and growth phases, and food from you, and, and andandand of course!

All right; it was just such a change from before, I was curious!

of course if its a very different color/smell/consistency as 'normal' than watch it and trust your instincts!

My DS used to poop several times a day until about 4 months old. Then, it changed to once a week or even longer and I got nervous, but it's all good. As long as your LO is eating and having wet diapers, it's fine. The poopy counts will vary.

Yes!  As long as the poop is not hard, dry pellets, any frequency is normal.
