DS is 16 months old and sometimes craps up to 4 or 5 times a day. He is on 3 solid meals a day and is no longer breastfed.
Is it normal for a toddler who is on proper meals, to still crap a lot each day?

My twins are 2years 3 months old and still poo 2-5 times a day. Each. I shudder to think of how many pooey nappies I have changed in the last 2 years.

When it ends.
Some days I still go more than once or even twice a day. DS tends towards every second day, except when he randomly goes 2 or 3 times a day for a day or so. Whereas you can set your watch by DH.
Everybody is different.

Totally normal at that age. Very annoying though lol!
DS is 28 months now and only poos once a day. Well, most days.

Even as an adult it's fine to be crapping 4 times a day - just so long as the stuff is firm not runny. The whole 1-bowel-movement-per-day thing is common, but not required for good health.
Bit of a pain when they're still in nappies though!

Yep, DS is 14 months old & generally poops twice a day, but some days it can be 4 or 5 times...
Teething time is worse cause they stink really bad lol
I'm sure it'll end one day - probably when we are no longer changing nappies & wiping bums....

Is it normal for DS to regularly skip poohing some days, and then save it all up for an all-day-poop-a-thon on the days when he's not at daycare and I can't make DH change him?
It does sound normal to me

As long as he's still a healthy weight, it sounds like it's fairly common. My DS is still doing about 5 poos a day, but he is horribly underweight and they have finally found a bacteria responsible which we are treating for now. I'm hoping for a dramatic decrease in the frequency of poo!
