Yep, completely normal. In fact it's normal for bf babies to go up to 10 days without a bowel motion. There is so little waste in breast milk. :)

Completely normal! Many (not all) breastfeeding babes will start to space out their bowel movements after a few months. Breastmilk doesn't have any fillers in it and can be almost completely digested. In fact, many babies will go as long as 7-10 days between bowel movements! Enjoy the poop-free lifestyle!

My daughter went 8 days without pooing when she was breastfed. I freaked out too! But it's totally normal.
