    Post Question about poopy diapers

    Hello mommies! I have a general question. My DS is 16 weeks now and I'm just wondering what exactly is he correct number of poopy diapers he is supposed to be producing. I'm EBF. Lately he will poop like 4-5 times in the morning then not so many times throughout the day. I just want to make sure he is getting enough breast milk. Does the # change with age? Thank u!

    My son is 8 months old and for the past 2 months even skips days. He usually goes every third day, but goes constantly the day he does go.

    I worried about this as my LO went from poopy diapers after every feeding to not going for 2 days. She is 6 mo now and will still occasionally miss a day or two but usually has at least 2 on the days she does go. If its been a few days since, she may have even more than that. I'd visit the kellymom link from the PP. There is good info on that site.
