In brief: More poop
Stooling in a nine month old can vary alot.
Many things can affect the frequency and the consistency of your childs stools...Runny nose, teething and congestion to name a few. As long as your child is doing okay otherwise it is probably normal. If he has fever or other symptoms see your pediatrician.
