My 14 month old has been pooping on average 6 times a day for 2 weeks. Prior to this she usually went 2 x per day. The poo is not diarrhoea but is soft (sorry!)

What concerns me the most is how quickly everything comes out. I fed peas at lunch and by 4.30om they had come through. Same with blueberries- out about 4.5 hours later. I’m worried she’s not getting the chance to absorb nutrients. She also has in incredibly sore bottom as she’s going in the night without waking.

Should I see the docs? She’s absolutely fine in every other way.

Sounds like very fast gut transit to me. My dd was diagnosed with something called "toddler diarrhoea" which we worked out was exacerbated by apple juice. If she's thriving and not losing weight then I'm not sure if it could be coeliac disease (I have this and tmi but everything went right through me, undigested, before diagnosis!)

I would see the doctor.

Don't try and experiment alone first, by cutting out x,y,z - go to the doctor first.

It might be worth asking them to see, it can’t hurt especially with a little one. My Dd is same age and happens often with her, but it seems to be baked apple crisps and cows milk that triggers it for her!

Thanks - my instinct was saying visit the docs because it’s been going on for ages but I wasn’t sure if I was going to be wasting docs time.

See the doctor, mine was like this he is fructose intolerant.
