    my son is almost 18 months, and doesnt poop every day. He will go every few days. Its usually soft, no issues with constipation. I dont think its anything to worry about! Adults dont always go everyday, i usually dont, so I just think its his digestive system starting to mature. My son does still BF a few times a day, and it doesnt make him poop more. He eats plenty of solids too.
    Sounds normal to me!!!

    My son is a little younger than yours, almost 15 months, and he does go every day, but I think that's just how he's made (it runs in the family lol). My niece and nephew, on the other hand, who are 4 years old and 18 months old, don't go every day; in fact, sometimes it's several for them. It sounds like your son is just right, especially if he isn't constipated or in pain.
