my baby often eats food and passes stool within a few minutes. i m worried if he is not digesting the food or is it normal to pass stool 2-3 times a day.

All kids are different some pass 2-3 times a day, other only 2-3 times a week. As long as she's gaining weight and she seems healthy and it's not diarrhea I think shes okay. My son goes about 4 times a day at first I thought it was weird but it's not effecting his growth. Its just the way his digestive system works.

the time in which food passes thru the digestive tract is called "transit time." So, if your baby is eating, it doesn't move thru the digestive system that fast....the food coming out is usually from the previous meal.

If the stool is pretty well formed, not diarrhea and not hard as rocks....sounds like baby is fine, just has a fast transit time.

He's probably passing the milk you fed him the day before, or at least a few feedings before. Eating just jump starts the digestive system, and causes his bowels to move. Unless it's diarrhea, I wouldn't worry he's not digesting the milk you're feeding him right then. Many babies pass stool in every diaper, especially when they're very young.

well I wouldn't worry too much then, unless his poop turns white or black(if it ever turns white take him to the er stat) and or if it was watery

with this I say ask his dr. My son has always pooped atleast once a day if not once everyother day. I've heard his dr say its normal if they poop once or twice a day or once everyother day. as long as he is still having a good number of wet diapers. My question to you is, how old is your baby? Is the poop runny or thick? What colors has his poop been? but I would still say you need to ask his dr.

Every bodies bowel habits are different. My daughter is 20 months and tends to go to the toilet once a day in the morning. Somedays every once in a while she will go three times in one day. As long as your child is growing and looks healthy don't worry about it.
