My ds did 6 poos the other day. I must stop feeding him fruit and veg. A diet of nothing but hardboiled eggs should do it.

(btw am v impressed at your ds saying 'poo poo' at 9 months. Think you should repost in G&T.)

Don't give him food. No input=no output

teach him to change his own nappy?

Am I right in thinking he is 9 months old? In which case I think making him sit in it to teach him not to or potty training him is a bit shock

It won't last forever, just suck it up (not literally!)

Don't put him in a nappy.

That way you can just clean up the mess in the weekly house clean.

If the smell gets too much you can always wear has masks.

This is a joke thread, right?

Tell him to grow up.

You lost the plot starlight or are you trying to be funny confused

gas masks, obviously hmm

By the way, rockbird's suggestion is counter productive. That will only make him cry from hunger, which will be a real nuisance. grin

My idea is much better

Firstly do you think he might be ill, or intolerant of something in his diet? If so, speak to your GP.

Potty training using the elimination communication method might work, it works for my friend, but you need to be committed, as I'm sure you can imagine.

Or buy washable nappies - maybe second hand from ebay if money is a problem.

Oh and BTW I hate changing pooey nappies. But it's all part of the job isn't it.

Can you crush up Immodium tablets and put them in his bottle with the baby rice?

SandStorm Sat 18-Sep-10 12:35:42

I know it's been a while since my two were in nappies but surely 4 times a day is the norm?

seriously, one of my friends had a baby who pooed once a day, always at nursery. She only had to change two pooey nappies a week! shock

I always wonder with this type of thread - don't you feel bad when people respond genuinely to you?
I would.

Is this thread for real? For goodness sake your LO is only nine months old. You can't get your LO to "behave" the way you want at this age.

My daughter got her nappy changed more than twice a day as I didn't like to think of her sitting in a very wet/dirty nappy for several hours anyway.

To want to change a nappy only twice a day is shock. What did you expect when you had a baby?

chibi Sat 18-Sep-10 12:47:02

are you taking the piss out of the other thread where the poster's ds might have some sort of bowel problem (coeliac maybe)

if so,

not nice

SandStorm Sat 18-Sep-10 12:52:05

Okay - serious advice here. You MUST NOT try to change your child's bowel movements. You could seriously damage his/her health. Don't be silly.
