When do a childs bowel movements begin to take form?

My daughter is 22 months old and her bowel movements still have no form. The only thing I can think to compare it to would be mashed potatoes. I know this is a funny comparison; but, I am curious as to when their bowels begin to take form?

I would ask the doc if everything is okay. It might be something she is allergic to, or something simple like that. Just make sure she is getting a balanced diet, not too much fruit or veggies, and take note of tummy troubles, like if she is gassy and make an appt after observing her for a few days. I hope I am not sounding too general, I hope you find an answer soon!! :)

it may just be the food u are feeding her - she my not be tollerating it to well. my daughter is 9ths and has regular bowel movements.
if u are concerned and have been to the drs already then see a child dr.
