baby poop question

My six week old used to poop at every feeding, now he poops only once every other day. It is a HUGE poop, and he still has at least 6 or 7 wet diapers every day so I'm almost sure thats normal right? I wanted to ask to make sure though, he's my first baby, haha I ask about everything on here. It's comforting to get advice from other moms.

  • Yep totally normal. If he's BF'd he can go many days without a bm and be just fine.

  • Yes, totally normal. You don't say if he's BF or FF, but for breast, they can go longer between poops without you having to worry, and with formula, you have to watch them a little more.
