My son is 2 1/2, and he probably goes poop 3-5 times a day. I remember my daughter not being the same because at that age I was having problems with her being constipated all the time. Is it normal for a 2 1/2 year old to have that many bowel movements in one day?

My 2 1/2 year old is the same way.  He goes after every meal and sometimes in between.  My babbysitter and family always comments about him going all the time.  It is normal, the only thing I hate is all the diapers we go through.  I keep thinking he will grow out of it, but it hasn't happened yet.  Nice to know other are doing the same thing.

My 20 month old, poops most days 3-5 times...sometimes as many as 8 and sometimes as few as none! I personally think its totally normal! It also has to do with his dieet. Some kids need to releave themselves more often then others. It's a good thing to be regular! It's nothing to be worried about, in my personal opinion!
