Newborn and Infant Care
Hi- Can you tell me if its normal for a 6 month old to poop 4 x in one day? Up until 2 weeks ago, he rarely pooped twice a day. He has been on solid food for a couple of months, so I thought maybe its because we are trying new fruits and veggies? Thanks
This change in bowel habits may be caused by a variety of reasons. Unless the stools are contain mucous or blood, this situation is well within normal standards.
