Help, no poop for 3 DAYS!

The last time ds pooped was Tuesday morning. He's breastfed and 6.5 weeks old. He's had plenty of wet diapers 7-10 a day but no full poop. He will have little poop like maybe half a teaspoon or something?

Is this OK? What's could be causing it? I haven't had as much fruit recently but that's really all that's changed. Its starting to worry me but he's still acting normal and happy. He burps and farts no problem just nothing really in the diaper. He has gone 24 hrs before without pooping last week but then he had a massive explosion the next day.

Let me know what you smart ladies think, ill be calling the dr when they open. They're very pro-bf. :)

normal for exclusively breastfed babies to have little to no poop for even a week, sometimes two. Breastmilk is so perfect for babies there's such little waste, therefore no need for baby to poop!

(As long as he's not acting constipated or having HARD poops)

If you started having explosions, you've moved past the daily poop stage. Not a worry.

Like the other ladies said, normal but BE READY! When he does poop you'll be shocked how much he stored up for you : )

By the time each of my 4 babies hit 9 weeks, they were pooping once every 3-10 days. And when it hit, it hit. Expect to drag out the carpet steamer and a change of clothes for baby and mama.

Normal. I will warn you though, once baby does poop, stand back! lol DS once went 11 days without pooping! Just our luck, he finally pooped while we were on a road trip. We stopped at a gas station to change him and OMG it was everywhere!! All over his back, clothes, just all over. All DH and I could do was laugh while cleaning him up. Another time he went a week w/o pooping and I ended up washing him off in the tub. Great times lol.
