Is he breast or formula fed? If breastfed, this could be normal, but if you are concerned, then speak to his dr. My DD didn't go at all after the initial poop until she was about 3 1/2 weeks old and thereafter only went once about every 10 days.
Here are some methods to try:
1. Massage your baby's tummy. Start at your baby's belly button and work outwards in clockwise circles. Use oil or lotion to let your fingers glide over the skin. I recommend natural oil like Safflower Oil. If the child visibly does not enjoy the massage, then stop.
2. Move your baby's legs in a cycling motion. Lay your baby on his back and hold your child's legs and gently move them in quick cycling movements. This moves the stomach muscles and also applies pressure on the intestines.
3. Give your baby a warm bath. This helps him to relax his anal muscles.
