Yes that is normal, your daughter is able to use everything in your milk so, I was told that Drs don't really worry about it until day 10 if they have not pooped.

Not only is it not uncommon for BF babies to not poop daily, but at different points in time (I can't remember when) babies systems change and what can and can not be processed and used changes and this changes their bowel movements as well and do things like go a week without pooping.
It happened with both of my older boys twice in the first 6 months, but only once with my third son.
