In brief: Breast babies

Breast fed infants can go a little every feed or overflow a diaper once a week.
If it is soft when they go i don't worry about it.Be prepared for a generous volume when baby does go.

In brief: Most likely, yes.

It is not unusual for babies to not pass a stool for 24-48 hours and then have a normal stool.
If the infrequent stooling continues or the consistency of the stool changes, contact your pediatrician.
