If he is exclusively breastfed, he probably isn't constipated. Breastfed babies can go a long time between poops without being constipated. Breastmilk is easier for babies to digest and there is very little left over that their bodies need to process. If he seems happy and isn't struggling or uncomfortable, I would wait another day or two and then call the doctor. If you're giving him anything besides formula or breastmilk, I would stop right away. Rice cereal and other solids can gum up their systems if they aren't ready for it.
