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: Breast fed

Babies can go 7 days without a bowel movement .
Just be sure the stomach is not distended , tender to touch or having bloody stools , fussy or febrile , vomiting or lethargy.Some babies go beyond that .If concern, please consult with your pediatrician.
