How many times does an average person defecate in a day?
They usually will defecate once a day.
Some will defecate with every feed - 8 to 10 times daily. Some will defecate every 2-3 days. If the baby seems bloated and has to strain on the stool or it seems uncomfortable passing it or seems to have an upset stomach then it may be constipated. If the baby seems comfortable and passes the stool easily then even once every 2-3 days is OK.
