He sounds fine. It is normal for a breastfed baby not to poop for days on end sometimes :) If his stools are soft and he is peeing, he's fine.

That's perfectly normal. He's peeing plenty eating plenty. He's fine. It's normal for breast fed babies to go for periods with out poos. As long as he's peeing and there no red or orangy patches in it which are called nitrated and means bubs is dehydrated then he fine. Your doing fine :)
