    Is he breastfed or formula fed? Breastfed babies can go anywhere from several times a day to once every seven to ten days.

    Yeah, it's really normal - two of mine did a pooplosion once every six days like clockwork! As long as bub is happy and having lots of wet nappies it's all good.

    EBF babies can go for a week or so with no poops. Unless he is in pain or struggling to get it out (ie it's quite firm) it's not considered constipation.
    Dd was a once a week pooper. Now she is on solids it's multiple times a day. : /
    I miss the once a week stage

    Thanks everyone, I was getting concerned for a bit there. He fills up his nappies still so I guess I'll just be waiting for pooplosions! ! Haha

    Both my boys switched from daily poos to once every 8-9 days at about 6 weeks old. Poor old childcare were traumatised the first time they were greeted with an 8 day poo - I had warned them that morning...
