DS will be 6 months in a week. He is EBF, no solids yet. Today is day 4 that he hasn't pooped. What is going on? He usually poops 2-3 times a day! He's not fussy and he doesn't even try to go so I don't think he's constipated. But I still tred massaging his tummy and pushing his legs up to his tummy but nothing. Idk what's wrong but im getting worried.

Sounds like he's building up for a big one, lol.  It's normal.

Dr told me up to 2 weeks is OK. As long as they aren't acting constipated and still fart. I went through this after ds was 1/1.5 Months. I LOVE it, our new normal is 1-2 times a week and its awesome. :)

Totally normal. If he was constipated, you'd be able to tell. I would put a loose fitting onesie on him and bicycle his legs. When he does go, it's probably going to be massive and get everywhere. A onesie will keep in contained a bit more than a shirt and pants. It is normal to go a few days without pooping for bf babies. Ds was going four times a day and then it was every five days until he started eating more food. Now it's more like every other day.

Thats pretty normal. Matt would go every 2 weeks then after we started solids it turned into once a week. He's still irregular but more like every few days now. As long as he's acting fine and dosent seem constipated he should be OK.

My babies pooped once every 3-10 days by the time they were 3 months old. And when it hit, it hit. I had to change the baby's clothes, my own clothes, and drag out the carpet cleaner.
