My sister is breast feeding her newborn daughter. She is 4 days old and hasn't had a soiled diaper since Thursday (two days ago). Is this common? I don't remember since my littlest one is over one.

Totally normal. Only get concerned if there appears to be discomfort. Just make sure she has around 5-6 wet ones a day, as this indicates that she is getting enough fluid and not dehydrated. As long as that is happening, there should be no real concerns.

Yes it's normal. Breastmilk is specially designed for babies so there isn't as much to get rid of. As long as she's not in pain but it's very rare for a breastfed baby to get constipated.
