Nah it's fine. We started our daughter on solids and she started going ALL the time, up to 6 times a day. It wasn't always a lot, but I was concerned. I talked to the dr. about it and she said it was fine, probably just more fiber in the diet than she was used to. She said more poop isn't a bad thing unless it's constant diarrhea.
