It's okay if he has : A bm every couple of days as long as his stools are not hard pebbles. Formula-fed babies generally have firmer stools than breast-fed babies. Breast-fed babies can have several loose-ish stools/day or every few days. If he has soft stools, there's no need to change the formula.
