    Default Toddler too many poos

    2 and half year old son has been doing 4-5 poos a day now for months. Tests say no bacteria. He is little more grumpy but no other symptoms. Poos are yuk, dark brown and not solid, they are always big ones snd stink so bad. He is putting on weight well. He doesn't stop eating, has always had big appetite, eats everything. Can it be a sudden intolerance or allergy to something, can that happen? What steps can take/tests? Or can it be because of massive appetite? Or could always being hungry be a symptom? Cant keep up with changing yuk poo nappies (was toilet trained, till new sister came along)

    Did the excessive pooing start when sister came? Or were happening before?

    My 2.5 yo also has started doing massive poos, only 2 a day usually though and they are formed. They are humongous though and I just put it down to the fact that he is eating tonnes of food lately.
