its totally normal my little one was the same and her pediatrician told me at the last check up that some breastfed babies poo once every other day and some can go as many as 10 times a day as long they are gaining weight and staying hydrated then its ok

My 7 week old poops after every feeding so I have lots of poopy diapers to change. I breastfeed and read it is normal. Don't worry as long as your little one is gaining weight.

When they are little like that they often poop every time you bf them. It's quite normal to have a ton of dirty diapers at first. Fortunately, however, as they get older they will often slow down quite a bit. My son is almost 6 months and  has only 1-2 poopy diapers a day and he eats PLENTY, trust me ;). So, you won't have to change a poopy diaper with each feeding, forever.
