How many times should my 8 month old baby poop?

My baby is 8 months old. She is for the most part on solid foods. She has rice cereal for breakfast and usually poops shortly after. Then she has an 8oz bottle and takes a couple hour nap. She has either baby food or left over dinner for lunch and another poop then another 8oz bottle and another nap and usually another poop before dinner. For dinner she usually has what ever we are eating. If she is not interested I will feed her a jar or two of baby food. She does have another 8oz bottle for bed time. She sleeps all threw the night and is the best baby but I feel like I am constently changing poopy diapers. Is this normal?

At 8 months, babies should be having maybe 1-2 poopy diapers. Count how many poopy diapers you actually change. If it is 3 diapers, I'd say your child just has a fast metabolism and is burning through the food quickly. Any more than 3 poopy diapers a day and I would be asking your pediatrician. Too many poopy diapers could signal something else is going on with your baby.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.
