Baby poops more with EC?

Before starting EC at 6 months my baby would poop once or twice a day. Now she often poops small amounts several times a day. She rarely poops in her diaper which is great. I'm thinking the pooping is because she's "trying" to go on the potty cos she knows that's what it's for (at least this is what I'd like to think). I guess it could be because of introducing solids, but she eats so very little of them. And her poop is still EBF poop. Anyone else's baby do this?

Makes sense as your baby is smart and doesn't want to sit in poop probably.
I've read it before of other babies doing the same

I don't know if she would poop less if we didn't ec because ive don it since birth. However dd (9 weeks) poops 2-6x a day! I figure shes being put in position which presses her tummy a bit and she empties more often than letting it build up.

That does sound right! Kids are quick learners.

We get tons of little mini-poops throughout the day on the toilet as well. In fact I'm impressed that the little guy can produce them so frequently on demand!
