It is common: It is normal and very common for parents to complain about it. Keep breast feeding. Normal range for stooling varies. It is normal to have one bowel movement once every 2-3 days and also every time when you feed her, especially if you breast feed as long as there is no vomiting and baby eats well. You can try putting her on her tummy; remember though only when she is awake and you watching her.
