21mth old - what kind of poo?

This is a bit of a weird question but I'm sure some of you can advise.

Should my DDs poo be more formed than not? When she poos, 99% of tbe time its mucky, like all over the nappy. Not runny but most defo not traditionally pop shaped.

Reason Im asking is that she is starting to be more aware of doing wees and poos, and although I reckon we're still a long way from potty training, I can't think how we'll deal with unformed poos on the potty.

Starting to worry about her diet now, is this a sign that she's missing out on something vital?

Thanks for any advice.

just marking my place as I've often wondered what was normal in terms of poo for my nearly 22mo. grin

my DS's are quite squishy too a lot of the time, not sure if this is due to him sitting on a few of them while jumping about playing blush

My DS is 22.5 mo, and only this last week his poos have been harder. However, he does eat a mountain of fruit which tends to keep him somewhat looser! What they eat and drink will change the consistency.

Poos on the potty are a rarity for us as he tends to poos during his afternoon nap confused, but the couple of sloppier ones that we have had on the potty were not too bad....until the one occasion when he decided that he had finished, and galloped off, dropping lumps, and then walking in it sad. Keep Vanish and Febreze til you can get the carpet shampooer out!

Actually, for what it's worth, adults are supposed to have sloppier poo, too, it's a sign of a good diet. If they're poo-shaped, you're not eating enough fruit and veg.

So nothing to worry about!

DS' are like that as well. Once he did a poo on the floor though and it curled around like a dog poo blush so I think more squashage in the nappy than anything else.
