The amount, color, frequency of stool varies with foods, speed of emptying of the GI tract, medications & supplements ingested, gut flora (unique for each individual), additives (like blood), subtractions (like absent bile), infection, inflammation, & other factors.

Bowel movements/day: 3 would be considered normal, 4 is frequent but on the lower side of abnormal. May be of no major significance if no abdominal symptoms such as abdominal pain/bloody diarrhea, bloating is present. Also, if the stools are formed and not runny, may be normal.

Is it normal for an 8yo child to go poop 5 times/day?

5 poops/day not norm: There are a lot of other questions that need to be answered, but the short answer is no it is not normal for an 8 y/o to poop 5 times/day. A more detailed description of the stools and eating and drinking habits is needed here as well as if there is any belly pain, decreased appetite, weight loss, low energy, fevers, etc. Your child should have a visit to the pediatrician to further manage this.

How many times a day a newborn poop?

Depends on situation: A newborn must first pass the dark sticky meconium stool ; this starts day one or is abnormal.Once it clears, if baby is breast fed they may stool a little smear every feeding or one big crib full once a week. Breast milk is so well digested that it may not leave much behind for poo. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.Formula babies go more often.

How many times should you poop and pee a day?

How many times should you poop and pee a day?

Varies a lot.: Some people have several bowel movements per day, and others have one or two per week! with respect to urination, this varies too. Your urine should be clear like water, or pale yellow. If it is dark or concentrated, you need to be drinking more fluids! if you are thirsty, it's likely that your body is signalling that you need more water. Hope this helps. Lgromkomd.

How come i literally poop 10 times a day at the onset of my period?

How come i literally poop 10 times a day at the onset of my period?

Hormones: The prostaglandins that are up regulated in our menstrual cycle around that time can definitely affect our gastrointestinal system. A lot of women complain of diarrhea around this time as well. Sadly, normal and bothersome! not much you can do other than try to bulk up on fiber. You can also try birth control pills as they can lessen degree of symptoms. Best of luck.
