Are these normal bowel movements for a one year old?

my 1 year old is having 3 to four pretty normal bowel movements a day for the last two weeks. she is in the 3 percentile for weight and the 97 percentile for height. could the frequent bowel movements have anything to do with the weight gain?

Answer #1

Probably more to do with what and how much she is eating.

Answer #2

As long as she’s not having any trouble, she’s eating, and every thing is normal don’t worry about it … weight gain often happens just before a growth spurt.
