Every baby is just different. I have 16 1/2 month old twins. One poops 5 times per day. The other only poops once per day, sometimes none, sometimes two. They eat pretty much the exact same things everyday. They're just different. It's fine.

My son poops up to 5 times a day also. It's disgusting, and a pain, but I don't think there's any harm in it. We've mentioned it to the doctor and he's not concerned. His is like you described too, sometimes loose, sometimes nuggets- always stinky!

mine usually poops 3-4, but 5 is not unheard of. she's also about 19lbs and 31". i'm jealous of those mom's who only have to deal with one poop a day!

Try giving him bannana's and toast that should actually keep him more regular :)..My daughter used to do the same thing and i just started giving her stuff that will stay in her longer and actually harden her up :)..i don't reccomend giving him loot's at first cause he might get constipated just 1 bananna a day and a piece of toast i usually give it to her in the morning time :)(but NO i don't think its not normal..It's always good to poop.But ask your pediatrition before anything)



Good Luck,

Reyna
