as long as you arnt ' giving the baby any formula or food other than breast milk it is normal. like was said above... soon there should be an explosion... it will be nasty but normal. most breast fed babies will do this a few times.

I used to freak out and call my pediatrician weekly because my daughter hadn't pooped that week! It's completely normal as long as your EBFing and your child doesn't seem to be in pain. Some doctors consider it a sign that your child has a really good digestive system that sucks up everything leaving no waste! (But, it doesn't hurt to call your EBF friendly pediatrician to be sure!)

Unfortunately...yes...as terrifying as that sounds...yes....As long as he/she is making a wet diaper 8-10x daily, she/he is fine. But if you are worried, don't hesitate to call your pediatrician....especially if this is your first baby. That is why they make the big bucks!
yes it is.. although i know the feeling of being concerned about it bc they go from rocket power poop to like you said a week might go by.lol and ur like.. uh ok then.. my boys both did that.. just watch for discomfort bc of it.. i doubt shes constipated or anything just watch her behavior
