In brief: No! See doc now...

This is highly abnormal.
You need to call your child's doctor immediately.

In brief: Breast or bottle ?

Breast fed babies can have a little smear with each feed or have one big blowout every 7-10 days.
Bottle fed kids will poo more predictably & should go daily. If the poo is soft it is not considered constipation. I don't get hung up on babies timing, I like to look at them to see how they feel.
