i think as long as he's not constipated or having diarrhea--you're fine. Gruffi is a year old and wants to poo 3 times a day! i think he some times holds it so that he can go so often, you know? like maybe the first time he could poo more--but he stops himself. does toby go potty outside? sprite and ellie are used to going inside, but lately we've been leaving our back door open so that they can go in and out---and i think sprite tried giving me a 'signal' that she wanted to potty outside. but i'm not sure, i hope she did....but i didnt listen--so she might not try again.
