My little girl is 4 months and breast feeding so maybe my advice will help a little. She is my second. You don't need to worry about poop so much as long as he is peeing around ten times a day. He should poop every other day but I was told not to worry until like four days. My baby was latching fine on one side but not the other what helped was a nipple shield until she figured it out. It does hurt for a while breast feeding even if they are attaching correctly a couple of weeks and it is better. One of my friends told me you have to be determined, she was right! Good luck I hope I helped and congratulations!

At that age, as long as he is putting out 8-10 wet diapers, there really is no concern about pooping. Often bfed babies won't poop daily.
As far as latching, i would have a lactation consultant help you out. My son was doing the same thing, and he was not latching properly, but still getting plenty of milk. The latching wrong made him work harder, and it hurt like hell.
