    my daughter was born on monday and for the past two days after every feed she has been pooing then wanting more milk then pooing.
    She has filled her nappy about 4/5 times in an hour

    yeah sometimes its constant! as long as its the right colour and she's ok otherwise and still has wet nappies it sounds fine. if it's constant like that for a few days i'd maybe start to think 'is this normal'.

    Yes totally normal.
    Breastfed babies poop a lot.
    Aleena's dirty diapers only just decreased at 6-7 months!

    Very normal! Thomas used to just poo and poo...and poo!

    Drinking breaskmilk stimulates gut action, I read in one of my baby books, so makes them poo while they are feeding.
