my excl-bf ds has been doing 8-10 poos a day since having a minor bug 2 weeks ago (he is now 11 weeks). He wasn't very ill, just had a temp for 1/2 a day. Prior to this he was going about 3-4 times a day from about 6 weeks.

Obviously it is a drag having to change him so frequently, but other than a snuffly nose and bit of a sticky eye he seems to be a well baby and is generally pretty content, feeds well and very freqently.
haven't weighed him since bug, but was gaining well.

any ideas? should I take him to docs?

BF babies vary grately in their habits ime. I would get him checked though just to be sure.

Dont worry at all tis normal
breast fed babies [excusive] can poo 10 times a day or once a week and its fine so please relax and dont take him to the doctors x
