    No that's not goo at all for a newborn. He/she should be pooping at least 2 times a day especially if he/she is breast fed. I'd call the doctor!

        Breastfed babies can go a week without pooping. Most hospitals won't send you home until they have. Is she having enough wet diapers during the day? Do a tummy massage-rub counter clockwise-to loosen bowels. Gently move leg to do a bicycle kick loosens everything up. She'll probably let go when you least expect it.

          I was always told by my docs just to call if they haven't gone for a day. So that's the best option to be safe I think lol. I was always a worrier tho.
