How often does a 3 week old baby should be having a bowel movement? Is one time a day okay, should I be worried?

In brief: It's fine
One time a day is fine.
If your baby goes only once every 3 days, talk to your doctor about what to do.

In brief: Depends
Breast fed kids may go a little every feed or one bulky stool every 7-10 days & if soft they are not constipated.
Most formula babies go 1-2xd. Any stool that is dried out is constipation & a sign things are not moving along fast enough.
