Do red seedless grapes cause more pooping??

I recently started giving my 16 month old red seedless grapes...which he loves and snarfs down almost faster than I can cut them up. He normally has a poopy diaper 1-2 times a day....seems like on the days he has grapes it can be anywhere from 3-5 times. And then he ends up getting a red sore butt. Is this normal...I have never heard of a reaction to grapes? Do I stop letting him have grapes? I am pretty sure it tracks with the grapes...but not 100% as he has only had grapes for snack a few times.

I give my daughter extra grapes and oranges when she is constipated and it does cause poop that irritates their skin so before I give them to her I put some ointment on her bottom.  She only gets grapes once per day.

my little boy is of similar age and both my kids go to the toilet more once they have eaten grapes. m little girl loves them but i limited them to a handful between them (about 3 each) and that seems to have settled it down. my son i the same after eating a lot of fruit. try limiting his intake of grapes see if that helps if it doesnt i would ask a health visitor or doctor incase it is an allegy i cant c it tho.
