Question: 8 month baby has irregular poop sked

 jack daniels - Wed Aug 11, 2010 12:20 am

Hello. I have an 8 month old baby right now. He pooped his nappies on 6:30 am then again at 7:30 am with no meals between. Then he did again on 10 am. Is it normal? I'm scheduling an appointment with his pedia right now. I'm desperate. Help!

User avatar Hello,
Yes, this is perfectly normal. Babies vary considerably in their bowel movements and you cannot expect a regular pattern for some time (if ever). Don't worry.

Best wishes.
