Poopy diapers is the norm for a 15 month old to have in a day?
I swear my kid poops at the very least five times a day. Usually its about 10 or more. I feel like i'm changing a poopy diaper every hour! This is getting so old. THe funny thing is it's not diarrhea it's just regular poo.



How many do you change in day?

I'll usually change maybe 1 or 2 a day. But she can go 2-3 with out a bowel movement.

Oh wow. Does she have constipation problems? One or two doesn't seem bad to deal with or even three or four but this kid... I swear man he is going through more diapers now than he did as a breastfed newborn!

Well i'm glad to hear she isn't anymore. I know that can be really hard on the little ones.

It's annoying and i'm tired of constantly smell shit in my house haha. Like his poop is so rank that you can smell it half way across the house when he does it! It's craziness. And i'm not over exaggerating either. He has been up since seven and I've already changed three full poopy diapers... I mean is it good that he is pooping this much? He definitely isn't losing weight thats for sure. And like i said its like either actual poop or its the mushy kind. But no diarrhea, i didn't even know it was possible to go as much as he does!

What are you feeding him? lol is he teething? I mean if mines cutting teeth he can poop 10+ times a day but on a normal day he will poop 1-5 times. Depends on what he has eaten usually..

Everything I do?
cream of wheat, oatmeal, shredded mini wheats, fruit and vegi pouches, beans... He LOVES black beans haha and refried beans, sometime he will eat hamburger (not a big meat eater) He loves rice too. Cereal bars, sausage, cheese, yogurts. I don't know! He eats a lot of stuff i suppose. Could it be because he is eating a lot of stuff with fiber in it?

Of course i didnt list EVERYTHING he eats but that was a few that were off the top of my head haha. Should I not be feeding him that much fiber?! :(

if he likes those foods, give them to him. I don't think theres anything wrong with having a flushed out intestinal tract. Its super hard to find the right fiber balance! Those foods are super healthy for him..so I say go for it. My youngest eats about the same minus the beans.. I'm sure the beans are the overkill lol but, if you cut back on some of his fiber intake, he may not poop much. my son's poo is like half firm half soft if that makes sense.. its not totally squishy so its easy to pass. We found our happy medium. I'm scared of when he weans and drinks more regular milk.. he's going to be constipated. I'd rather my kid have too much fiber than not enough.. my oldest finally doesn't have issues often..because I make sure he gets his whole grains with wheat bread and I found a big G cereal he likes.

Ya know, I was worried that Gideon would have ahard time with milk too but he actually didn't he loves milk and it has never kept him from pooing. He also drinks quite a bit of water too sp i'd say that helps and I give him at least half 4 oz of juice and 4 oz water mix a day too. Everything i listed he loves. I guess I never really payed attention to how healthy some of the stuff he eats is haha. I can't get him to eat normal vegi's unless there is some sort of sauce that he likes on it so I buy those squeeze pouches with the fruit vegi mix and he eats the crap out of em. Thats the only way i know he'll eat vegetables.



I'm glad your oldest isn't have issues anymore. I'd say its rough dealing with constipation or dealing with hard stool thats painful to pass. Poor kiddo.
