I think there is a pretty good range here. Much of it has to do with if the baby is formula or breast fed. Charlie has been formula fed his whole life with some breast feeding attempts in there at the beginning. He definitely pooped more in the beginning when breast milk was part of his daily diet.

When he went to formula exclusively I notice that he only pooped once a day. Sometimes that changes, he'll go maybe 2 or 3 days once in a while.

At 6 months we started him on baby food so that changes things, too. Whenever I introduce a new kind of fruit or veggie, he'll go a day without anything. My pediatrician said that the formula has added iron and can contribute to him not being all that regular.
