    Oli usually goes once a day, usually fairly predictably at the same time each day.

    But for the last few days it seems constant!

    Yesterday he pooed 5 TIMES. Today, by 2pm he'd pooed 3 times! They aren't just little poos either, they're full nappies. :sick: (and they stink!)

    He isn't eating anything different or anything like that, I can't think of any reason for the change, so can anyone else think of something which could be causing it?

    Jake has been the same for the last week!!! 4-6 poo's a day! Used to be 1 or 2, no diet changes either, I'm wondering if it's something associated with teething? I hope someone knows :) x

    I thought teething too, but then I notice everything that is unexplained ends up getting blamed on that :rofl: I can't think what else it could be though. It's seriously rank though, isn't it?

    for my lo, she does this about 2/3 weeks before a tooth pops out! she usually has one possibly two poos a day, but when this 'thing' strikes, she can easily have 5-7 dirty nappy changes.
    And oh boy, do they stink or what!

    When it first happened, (a whole week of intense pooing, and they were harder than usual), i called the hv, but since then i havnt been worried, and there does seem to be a patterncoinciding with the teething; or it could be a total coincidence.


    but, as long as your little man is ok, getting enough fluids i wouldnt worry so much. x

    Oooh brilliant, thanks hun. I am on the look out for teeth any way as I've been convinced for a couple of weeks that his 3rd & 4th top teeth are about to make an appearance, so let's hope so! x

    Ewwwww Ivy has done this today too. I just spent around half an hour sniffing around the living room because I was convinced I smelt cheese, which Ivy found hilarious. Eventually I managed to locate it to her nappy :sick: 3rd poo today! I'm putting it down to teething or the fact that she has been eating a lot of fruit recently.
