Totally normal that your 8 month old is pooping a lot, not fun for you... but normal. Don't worry about it.

I don't think your 8 month old pooping a lot is abnormal, especailly if he is teething. As long as it's normal stool I wouldn't worry!

My son is 2 1/2 & still poops 2-3 times a day! I've been doing Daycare for years and most kids poop at least 2 times a day. At least that's what I've noticed. I'd say its normal that your 8 month old is pooping a lot.
