    Default More bowel movements

    My 3 month DS has been having more bowel movements than usual. He used to poop once a day (he would miss a day every now and then). Also, his poops was all liquid and mustard color...typical EBF baby poop. Now he goes 2 or 3 times a day...same color...a little more consistent...almost like mashed potatoes.

    Is this normal? Has this happened to anyone else?

    ***The only thing that has changed is a multiple vitamin that the doctor prescribed***

    Sounds normal to me. Expect lots of changes in poop color, consistency, smell, and frequency throughout the first year. As long as baby doesn't seem unwell or uncomfortable, it's usually nothing to worry about.

    I agree that it sounds normal too. Around that age, my DS started to go a lot more frequently too.
