    7 month old, pooping too much?
    wifey186 posted:
    My daughter is 7 months old, she was born 10 weeks early. We started solids at 6 months, twice a day. Three weeks ago we started solids three times a day and she still takes about 22-24 ounces of Neosure formula a day as well. Is the last week she has been pooping a lot more. Before she would go once, maybe twice a day, about the same time. In the last week, she has been going about 6 or more times a day. The majority are now smaller more solid, soft poops, where before it was one big blowout. She still has one big blowout a day but the rest are more solid. Is this normal? I am calling the pediatrician in the morning, but was hoping to hear some answers tonight.

    I think it's normal. Adding solids is going to change the consistency, frequency and smell! The type of food will also affect the bowel movements. I have also noticed my son goes more often now that we have added solids.
