I asked our doc the same question. Sometime my little girl poops once everyday and sometimes every other day. No worries. Just make sure that the bowel movement is no too firm and that she is making enough pee diapers.

Totally... my baby only poops like once a week... every baby is different and since you are breast feeding they are getting less milk solids... it is perfectly normal for a baby to poop less when they are breastfed as opposed to formula

Normal! :) My little one goes once a day. We breastfeed, and after six weeks, it is normal for a breastfed baby to go a week between poops. It just is digested more efficiently. And even formula fed babies can go once a day. "Constipation" is classified as having very hard stools rather than not going in a baby, which usually happens in formula babies at one point or another.

It can be totally normal. I freaked out when my breastfed baby started pooping only once every three days! This was at around 2 weeks or so. The doctor told me that as long as I was breastfeeding and she was happy otherwise then it was totally normal. Now that she has started on solids she poops twice a day or so.
Apparently as long as they are 'regular' then it doesn't matter how often 'regular' is...
