    Toddlers' poop patterns vary in frequency; it's not uncommon for a child to go twice a day, or once every two or three days, or even just once or twice a week. It may still be mushy, or it may begin to appear more formed. What's important is that poop should come out smoothly, without excessive pain or strain.

    Most toddlers should have a soft bowel movement every one to three days.
