Bowel frequency in healthy children.

Author information

Clinica Pediatrica Universita di Milano, Italy.


Bowel frequency was recorded, on a diary sheet basis, in 662 children from six Italian cities. There is a wide interindividual variability, showing a sharp decrease with age; we report the distribution of the percentiles in the different age groups. Among infants, the breast-fed ones pass significantly more stools than the formula-fed.
