Doctor can check: The doctor can check the baby to see if the baby is fine or is constipated. Some babies do not poop every day, while others are having problems and need to poop more often than that. Generally, as long as a baby is normal in eating, growth, and development; and does not have firm poop, bloating, or tummy aches; then the number of poops per day is not very important.
