11wo ebf dd is still pooing like a 2wo -- 3-5 times a day most days. She is pretty consistent and doesn't seem uncomfortable, but none of the other babies of this age we know are still doing this! Is it ok?

My 11wo is the same, I thought that was normal blush

I thought that was normal too! My 12 week old does the same but it is down on the multiple figures he was doing as a newborn.

My 19 wo still poos at least 3 times a day. Usually more like 5-6, sometimes 8! Don't worry.

ok good, thanks! I thought it was normal too but having done a quick survey, it seems as though my dd alone is producing as much poo as all of the 13 other 2-4 month old babies of our acquaintance put together. And often at night, which I do wish she wouldn't.. Glad to hear she's not the only one though!

Yes, my baby did at this age - around 6 poos a day!! One day it just changed to one a day. Very disconcerting.

Huge range of normal with breastfed babies apparently. I knew a baby at the same age who went once a week!

Normal here, dd1 pood every single feed until 6 months.

Are your friends' babies formula fed? I wonder if that makes a difference?
