In brief: How fed ????

Breast fed infants may stool a every feeding or once a week.
If it is soft it is not constipation. If formula fed, the pattern is more likely to be a few daily or at least every other day.If stools are soft & baby feeds well & plays, there is no reason to be concerned.If a poor feeder & not wetting diapers at least every 6 hours, i would have her checked.Stool color varies thru greens-yellow-brown
