This is a strange question. My son just turned two and he has always been an infrequent pooper. Once every 8 days back in his exclusively breastfed days, and until very recently, once every other day.

Ever since the moment that I got pregnant, he's been pooping 2 or 3 times per day. Coincidence? Has anyone else experienced this? I'm getting sick of the poopy (cloth) diapers.

Hummm...interesting. Now that you mention it, seems like DD has been awfully runny and more frequent this past week or so. I was chalking it up to normal toddler diet fluctuation. But I suppose it's possible that hormones in milk could play a part. Anyone actually know something?

(And LOL about the poopy CDs - we've been (guiltily) using 'sposies for the past several days cause I just couldn't take it and needed a break!)

Glad to hear I'm not the only one. I don't remember this with DD, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. I hope it's transient. I'm really really sick of him walking up to me multiple times per day, often when I've forgotten to put in a paper liner, and saying "poot!" I'm just not used to this.
