In brief: No

Your child does not have to have a daily bowel movement.
As babies get older, the frequency of bowel movements will decrease. As long as there is no straining or hard stools, nothing to do.

In brief: If they act sick

A baby who is eager to feed and stays in their usual pattern is usually fine.
Breast fed babies can have a little poo each feed or a big blowout every 7-10 days.If the belly is soft and baby happy, give it some time.
