Is it normal for a toddler to still be crapping multiple times a day?

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.

It can be normal, or it can be from too much fibre...they take a while to manage it....dried or fresh fruit is often the culprit....more than one or two daily serves is too much fibre at that age...no big deal, but can cause a lot of poo...
My SIL's kids are nuts about fruit....at about two they were easily eating four serves or more a day, ESP dried fruit... And going 3-5 times a day....cut back....and back to once or twice a day....

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!
