how many poops a day?

It's amazing how poop and pee have become regular words out of my mouth since having children. And, not just the words, but the number associated with each one!

And, the number of times a baby poops -- or doesn't poop -- each day is top-of-mind and a source of stress for many moms.

How old is your baby and how many times does s/he baby poop a day?

My 10-month-old usually poops 2 - 3 times a day. Once in the morning -- after he's been up for about an hour. And once in the late afternoon. There's sometimes a "wildcard" poop after dinner. LOL!

My 19 month old usually poops once a day or at least once every other day. Some times he'll poop a couple times a day but generally it's once.  We feed him at minimum 1 fruit cup a day to help.

My son is 12months and he's a pooppy guy, average around 3-4 a day since birth. Our Ped says it's absolutely fine and it just shows that his digestive systerm is very strong, as long as the poop looks "normal".

My daughter is 3yr and she usually goes just once a day...once in a while she'll go twice but that's rare.

My 22 month old has his daily constitutional every morning after he's been awake for about an hour. Sometimes after a weekend of off-schedule mealtimes he will go more than once. This is much more frequent than his first year, though. While he was breast feeding he would only poop about once a week! It used to keep me up nights and was something I kept track of on the calendar. So glad he's a little more dependable these days.
