Q.

PASSING OF STOOLS

My daughter is turning 2 yrs old this month. My question is how often should she be passing stools at her age? I sometimes worry that she may be constipated but she does not show signs of discomfort.

If you daughter is passing stools without discomfort then all should be well.Children of this age usually pass one stool a day but may skip a day or two at times, but usually not more than 2 days.
