Unless you are a mom of a little one, you are probably thinking why in the world do I want to read THIS post? Who REALLY wants to talk about BABY POOP?
Well, the reason I am bringing up this stinky subject is because my 7 month old recently starting pooping ALL THE TIME. He has been eating baby food for about a month now, but last week, he has decided that he would like me to change his diaper every two hours (at least that is how I feel) LOL
Prior to this poopy week, we were going through only around 5-6 diapers a day. But NOW, it is DOUBLE that. Everytime I turn around I smell poop! I look at my son and he gives me a big grin and it almost seems like he is saying – “Sorry mom, but I am a baby, ya know!” Yeah, it is cute – but come on! Mommy is TIRED of changing POOPY DIAPERS! LOL
My other 2 children NEVER pooped this much, so I decided to do some research on this wonderful poopy subject and I found some great stuff! First I want to share a FUNNY video that I found while researching. I was cracking up. LOL
So, I did a Google search under “baby pooping too much” and I found a whole bunch of cool stuff.

Through all of my reading, I am seeing that there is a WIDE RANGE of normalcy concerning babies and how often they poop. As long as everything has been properly digested than there is no cause for concern. My son may just need some time for his body to adjust to eating baby food on a regular basis.
Have you ever had to go through this with your baby? I would love to hear about it and if it lasts. I need to prepare now to buy out all the diapers here in NY, especially at the rate my boy is going. 🙂
I always love to hear your comments. And if you are in need of a good book check this one out! It is available both as downloadable Kindle and Paperback. And I included a couple other fun products as well!
My baby is 4 months old now and weighs almost 19lbs and is wry healthy. He has poo’d 6-12 times a day since almost day one. We use baby wash cloths on his bum with water and mostly dab instead of wipe and occasionally use desitin when rash get a bad but have been able to keep almost no rash with no Diaper cream by dabbing with the cloths. We have about 50 of them and just wash them and start over when they are all done. Hope this helps.
