my 2 month old only poops once a day. Is this normal??

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...
