    Diaper Change Frequency

    I have been blessed with a healthy baby who is now 2 weeks old. My mother in law was surprised to hear that my baby poo-poos 2 or 3 times a day as she says the normal frequency should be ONCE a day only.

    I have checked on the websites and seems that every baby is different, but still wanted to ask the experienced mums to see if there is a need for me to be concerned.

    Thanks!

    2-3 times is fine. our son used to poo 3-4 times a day and we changed his formula and he started to poo only once a day and we wished he poo 2-3 times a day. But 2-3 times or once a day is all fine as long as it is not liquid . nothing to worry

    I am assuming he is formula fed? All babies are different, as long as he is not constipated or has diarrhea, I wouldn't worry about it. At 2 weeks of age, my babies pooped pretty much every feed, like 10 times a day

    Our guy would poop 3-4 times as well. I was nursing him. He's now 5 and still poops at least 2x/day.

    my little ones would poop at almost every single changing. this lasted until about 2.5-3 months. my son (2.5yr) is very regular with one per day. my daughter (8m) does it either 2x per day or one huge explosive one!

    Thank you all for easing my concerns! Now I am not so stressed whenever my little angel goes 'poo-poo'.
