In brief: Varies

Stool patterns vary on the diet and how often they feed.
Also depends on if they have food allergies, intolerances, constipation issues. 2-3 times per day is normal.

In brief: Once a week

In a normal baby, the minimum would be once a week.
As long as the stools are not thick, like clay or play-do, or little pellets or balls, then once a week is normal. Some babies poop every feeding and others once a week. There is everything in between. If the stool is thick or hard, then you should treat for constipation.
