Depends on situation: 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.Formula babies go more often, generally 1-3 times/day..

Is it okay for a months old baby to not poop for a day

Depends: A breastfed kid can have a smear every feed or a large stool once a week. If it is soft it is not constipation. If it is hard, you can use natural juices like full strength prune, 1 oz 1-3X/d spread out. This will loosen most kids in 3 days. You can reduce the dose & uses as needed after it settles.
