How often does a normal child poop? I realize that this is totally gross, but we're all Moms, so by now poop is not as wierd a thing anymore! I babysit a 16 month old boy. He poops 3-4 times a day, just during the time that I have him (7:30-5:30)!! It's always pretty soft and loose...not full fledged diarhia, but never a real solid. I really think he must have some kind of food allergy. I just worry that he doesn't feel good...He was a really easy and calm baby, but has become a cranky toddler in the past 6 months or so. He cries/fusses way more than his sister or my daughter, and he doesn't sleep very good. Do any of your kids have food allergies that cause these types of symptoms?
PS: I know that ultimately a doctor would need to diagnose him, but I want to know if this seems like an allergy before I approach his mom about getting him checked out. Thanks for you help!!
