It's normal for infant not to poop for few days.


This can all completely vary from infant to infant and it can also vary depending on if the infant is being formula or breastfed... formula fed infants can go many times a day, whereas sometimes breastfed babies can go once every few days - even up to a week or 10 days! It seems like a long time, doesn't it? The key thing to remember is that the breastmilk is just about completely absorbed into the body, thus not much waste is produced, thus not as many dirty diapers. The formula on the other hand has a little more waste and thus, more dirty and regular diapers!
