My daughter is EBF and is pooping like crazy! I've read that EBF babies generally poop less often, but she is seriously going 6-7 times a day most days. They're healthy poops, no discolouration or diarrhea, but it still seems weird. She hasn't been sick at all either.
She nurses multiple times in the night. Could that be a part of it?
My little one went through the same thing. I agonized for months over his poops - I literally examined each poop closely to figure out if it was normal. For a while he had green poops but was feeding just fine and his behaviour seemed normal.
I think paying attention to poops can be beneficial, but it's also important to pay attention to behaviour. Your little one sounds like she's doing perfectly fine and thriving. I don't think you have anything to worry about as long as her behaviour seems normal and she's nursing regularly.
Way to go, mama! It sounds like you're doing a wonderful job!
Thanks! She has never once gone a day without pooping, and for a time it was 2-3 times, but it seems to have ramped up for some reason. There is no way this can increase when she starts solids... is there?
Josalyn was the same! She only recently cut back to only once per day a couple of weeks ago. The most she did in one day was 9, and the next morning her first tooth had cut through! After that it slowed down considerably!
