I had my son on Sunday and he pooped alot in the hospital. Lots of the tarry black stuff. We came home yesterday afternoon and he hasn't pooped at all since. He's been farting and peeing, just no poop. When should I be concerned about this? He seems comfy and content, just not pooping.

Is he breast fed or formula ?

Its common for babies on breast milk not to poop.

Breast fed. I figured it could be normal, but my other kids pooped with every feed so this is weird to me.

I have run into to this too with my children.  My last one (a preemie) and the nurses and dr told me not to worry.  He went about four days if I remember right.  As long as he wasn't too distended in his abdomen.  Of course, all of mine were beast feed and I think that was another thing were it wasn't uncommon.  I would just keep an eye on making sure the eating and wet diapers are still "on target" and before you know it (about the time you can't seem to wait much longer) it should happen.  :)
