two--my boys (both of them) seem to just always poop a little at a time...this was murder when ds1 was toilet learning, because he was in the habit of just pooping a tiny bit at a time, so he'd poop this little almond-sized blob like 8 times a day, and the same thing happened on the toilet--tiny poops, but so many times a day that it was hard to catch them all.... I'm now seeing my baby doing something similar, namely that he'll have lots of little poos in the day, rather than just a couple of bigger ones.
I think it's a phase...ds1 learned to 'consolidate' his bowel movements and doesn't have to go 10 times a day anymore. Sometimes the baby has just a couple bigger poops and sometimes he has a bunch of tiny ones...I don't know how much is diet and how much is just being in a phase...
|Diarrhea is defined as stool weight in excess of 200 grams per day. However, this definition is of little clinical value, since collecting and weighing stools is neither practical nor required except in a clinical research setting. A good working definition is three or more loose or watery stools per day or a definite decrease in consistency and increase in frequency based upon an individual baseline.|
