Sorry if TMI - nappy issues with 21 mo

I thought there used to be a joint nappies/potty training topic group, but can't find it....anyway

DD's number 2's are often fairly horrible and not particularly solid - there's no obvious pattern to this either. She has a balanced diet at home, I'm not very impressed by what she gets at nursery - not enough vegetables for my liking.

However, I'm no nutritional genius, so
is there anything food-wise that really helps to boost 'solidity' or things to avoid, is this a problem that I should get checked out or is it all perfectly normal for this age??

She's otherwise very fit and healthy with no obvious problems.

Hey KorrallKrabba - I have no personal experience im afraid but if you wanted to post on the potty training topic it is the 'being a parent' bit and click on 'more' it then gives a drop down list and its in there.

I hope someone else comes along who can help smile x

I don't know but want to bookmark this cos dd (4) is often a litte loose in the poo area

My mum always says that egg is very binding grin

Google toddler diarrhoea, it's quite common.

Thanks - that's really helpful.

I'm very wary of googling health stuff, but for once
a very sensible link

Makes me feel a bit faint about the potty training phase, but I may have to do battle with nursery on the woeful fibre-content of their menus.

Sorry I didn't say more earlier, ds2 had this and I took juice, grapes, oranges etc out of his diet and it started to get better, and was gone by 3. Odd

all three of my dcs seem to have this issue. Since potty training the two older ones its much better for me; the children don't seem remotely concerned by it. DC3 (13 months) has at least 3, if not 5 or 6, dirty nappies a day.

My mother says it is very healthy, and much better than them being constipated, but I must admit that it gets a bit wearing having to change so many dirty nappies.

It does seem to be normal for them though. DD1 is nearly 5, and very healthy and strong; the children are rarely ill. But they all poo runny poos at least 3 times a day!
