Poo with every diaper change and feeding?? My Baby is 5 weeks old and Im just getting enough diapers for an entire days worth which is 16 diapers. However tonight she pooped in a diaper I just put on and then I changed her and she went again we went through this 3 times in an hr!!! Isnt there an age( 1 month, 2 months) that they stop going all the time?? Now shes in a disposable because Im out of sturdy night diapers!! Ugh I cant wait for more fluff to come!!!!

DS#2 was around 2 1/2 months when he slowed down some, but he still goes at least 6 times a day. I guess I got spoiled by ds#1 who was going once every 3 days by around 1 month old. :LOL
sorry i have to laugh i so know what you are going thru. my youngest has always been an avid pooper. today we had a very odd day he ONLY pooped 2 times.
I would guess that he started to get more regulare when he started solids and that was at 10 months.

DS is 19 months and still poops twice, sometimes three times a day. Diapering would be a lot more enjoyable if he would poop only once a day!!
its like she knows that we only have a few good diapers left too!!
My dd is 12 weeks on Tues. and she doesn't poop but a couple times a day.. and sometimes not every day. It use to be every diaper change. She is still 100% breast fed too.

Usually between 6-8 weeks there is a change in the "poop cycle". :LOL Wish someone had told us when DD (first born) was that age and suddenly went 6 days without a poop. Scared the well you know
out of a couple newbie parents. Especially since she was going constantly before that.

They still seem to have a knack for having a sudden poop episode (having to change 2-3 diapers within a very short time (30 minutes or less) when you don't have a lot of spares around.

It really depends on the baby. Some, like my oldest daughter, will stop once they get past that "newborn" stage. And then there are babies like my youngest, who at 9 months still poops eachtime she nurses.
I think my baby slowed down around 2 months and now at 4 months, he usually goes only once a day.
I remember those changes where we used 3 diapers in one changing :LOL we had plenty diapers though and would always laugh about it.
I would say by 6 weeks DD started to poo maybe once a day and its now every other day or less often.
I used to long for the days my baby wouldn't poop at each change. It was so hard on her bottom. She is 3 months now and things have slowed down. Only problem with doing it all at once is volume and that once or twice a day blow-out!

I remember the never-ending breastfed blowouts. But on my last two boys, as soon as the meconium passed, they would poop about once a week. It picks up when they get on solids, but not on breastmilk only.

nak...just sharing your pain. I get happy if a diaper lasts one hour when he's awake. havin our share of piecemail poos too!

both my other 2 didn't slow down until solids were introduced, as best as i can recall.

OT: sophia kathleen (very close to your dd's name) was Zach's girl name

we started solids at 4 months & that started the slowdown. she was a 6x a day pooper for the longest time! (apples will still get her going!) they're all different though, my friend's baby pooped every-other day since he was born & it was just his version of normal. sorry!!!
