In brief: 3 - 4

A young breastfed baby usually poops after every feeding or after every-other feeding (averaging 3-4 poops a day).
As the weeks go by, babies tend to poop less often, some twice a day while others once every-other day. As long as a baby is normal in eating, growth, and development; and does not have constipation, bloating, or tummy aches; then the number of poops per day is not very important.

In brief: Varies

Breastfed babies can poop after every feeding, with every feeding, once a day, every other day, and "all the time.
" as long as its soft and they are feeding well and gaining weight, this is all normal.
