Strong Poop Smell in 20 month old boy diaper


My son is 20 months old; we feel that his poop is having very strong smell. He goes to poop once in a day regularly. Is it something we need to check with doctor? He eats regular food like what ever we eat on daily basis.

    My daughter has the same thing. She’s the same age as well. It wasn’t anything I was concerned with, but now I’m interested in what other people think.

    Nope, unfortunately it’s really just that stinky. The consistency of the poop is really all you need to look out for (too firm, too watery, etc). And once day frequency sounds like he’s perfectly healthy.

    My 17 month old has some super stinky bombs. I always assumed that it’s because it’s just in a diaper and not in a toilet bowl of water....but if the smell is “off” in any way (doesn’t smell like poop), then I’d have it checked.

    When it’s mushed up again their skin, sitting in a nappy, that stinky poop just gets stinkier! And, there’s poop that smells off, like Julie said, then that needs to be checked-out.
