My son has 4-6 poops a day. Pretty much one for every feed. He is a big eater and eats lots of solids as well as breastmilk. About 6 feeds a day in total. His poops are normal consistency and he has yet to be constipated. I'm curious how many others are experiencing this.

I am glad you asked it too! I was wondering the same thing about my little guy! He is breastfed and just loves eating food and I swear all I do is change poopy diapers! It's good to see that he's not the only one poopin' 5 times a day!

Same thing with my little guy. As soon as he started solids (he breastfeeds too), he started having at least 4 poops a day, and yes, he loves solids... veg, meat, fruit, cereal, you name it, he'll give it a try!

Thanks for asking this question Sarah. Since starting solids my daughter has been the same and I was starting to get concerned, but it appears from the above posts that it's fairly normal.

my little boy is the same way.  He's what I call a "scheduled pooper".  I know he poops every morning about 1/2 hour after he wakes up.  He'll go again after he has cereal, usually once more in the afternoon, and again before bed.  He thinks it's funny.  He laughs and laughs when he gets his poopy diaper changed.

As soon as I started feeding my son solids he started pooping about 4 times a day. Sometimes more! He's a pig and eats a lot too and is also breastfed. He loves his food! Sometimes I swear he's pooping more than he eats! :)
