7 dirty nappies a day??

Hi all, I am fairly new to mumsnet and can't work out how to post this under babies so apologies if this isn't in the right place.
I was wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and can offer advice. Basically my 3 month old son has all of a sudden started doing 6 -7 dirty nappies in a 24 hour period (up until recently it was just 1 a day).
They are normal consistency and not runny. He is having a bit of a cold atm and also had his second lot of jabs a week ago. Is this normal, at what point would you take him to a gp?
Many thanks

Does he have plenty of wee in his nappies? gp told me that they are not concerned with diahorrea for up to ten days after tummy bug. If you are not sure if you need to see the gp can you ring your HV for advice?

My DS did that many for ages. Are they BF? I think that's what caused my sons.

Thank you for your replies. Have left a message for HV.
He is breast fed supplemented by formula.Mil suggested it could be teething but he is only 3 months. I will give it a week.

Sounds perfectly normal. My first pooed with every feed and st that age my second pooed every 12 weeks, both are normal as is everything inbeween smile

DD1 always had a dirty nappy. I was quite shocked when DD2 didn't! DD1 has multiple allergies and it was a reaction to what I was eating and she was getting through the breast milk. She was allergic to formula, so that wasn't an option. Each baby is different, but if you are concerned, speak to the HV or GP.

Our DD's bowels went funny for a little while after the rotavirus vaccine so it might be that. Or the extra mucus with his cold maybe?

My 5 month old started having loads of poos a few weeks ago. I'm putting it down to teething! She seems perfectly well in herself so I'm not too worried!

I remember a week when DS was a couple of months old when he pooed after every feed - he was fine. But if you're worried then you've done the right thing contacting the HV.
