Or at least frequent poops? My 18mo LOVES grapes but I've noticed whenever he has them he goes at least 3-4 times a day. Usually he'll go only once or maayyybe twice. Grape-day poops are also foul-smelling and runny-ish (sorry, tmi). Could he be allergic to grapes? Or is it just a property of grapes (like prunes)?

grapes & grape juice relieve constipation, so they seem to be having that effect on your son.

Grapes can certainly cause it. You may also want to work extra hard on washing them before serving. There's a lot of surface area and so they can pick up a lot of icky stuff from the vines to your table.

I myself get diarrhea if I eat too many, and so do my DDs. DS seems to be immune to the effects-- he can eat a TON of them.

They contain a lot of sorbitol, and a lot of fiber, and either of those can loosen stools.

My DD2 has the same problem with blueberries.

My approach has been to sharply limit quantity.

I think it's any fruit that can cause diarrhea.

you are RIGHT. my dh refused to change ds's stinky butt but i was occupied elsewhere so he had to do it. and he did literally fall on his face. i'll have to stop bringing grape home i guess and avoid temptation for the poor kid.
