10 months old and pooing 4-5 times a day!

My DS is ten months old, and this week, his poo has escalated to 4 or 5 times daily. They are not particularly big poos, and they don't seem to be too hard or too soft, just normal.

He seems in perfectly good health and is eating normally, plus having his usual frequent milk feeds (breastfed).

Is this normal or should I speak to my HV about it?

Very interested in this, as was thinking the same thing. So many poo's!

I was worried he is pooing so much because he is not digesting his food.

Maybe its just a sign of a healthy gut?

my ds has done this from when he stopped doing the millions of liquidy bf poos (can't remember when that was blush).

I know ppl whose babies poo every other day, or less and I wonder why ds does it so often but i suspect it is on the normal spectrum of pooing grin.
