DD is 25 months and has been using the potty for about a month now. We just gave it a try because she hated diapers so much, and so far, so good. I have noticed something strange, though, and thought I'd ask for some perspective.

When she was wearing diapers, she had two poops a day, almost like clockwork. Morning and late afternoon. Now, she's pooping all the time, like 4-5 or more times a day. I'm sure the volume is about the same, but they are in much smaller ... portions.

Is there any reason why she should be pooping MORE often in a potty than she did in a diaper? Should I be concerned?

Trying to be a joyful Catholic wife and mama, and taking it one day at a time!
