Baby constipation: Usually breast fed babies hsoudl poop well, if htere is change in the bowel habits? If baby is not distended over the abdomen and is fine otherwise for feeding and mood, u may try apple /prune juice. It also depends on ur diet/meds taken ASD some foods/meds may pass in the breast milk and give ur baby constipation.

Variable: If baby is breast fed they may stool a little smear every feeding or one big crib full once a week. Breast milk is so well digested that it may not leave much behind for poo. If it is soft, the frequency of stooling is not important.
