My son Zackary doesn't have a bowel movement everyday. Infact he goes every couple days without one. Is there something wrong with him? I have no idea what to do. Please help me if you have an answer.

Constipation has nothing to do with the frequency of his poo, but the consistency. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Not all baby's poop everyday. It can depend on what he is eating. if you breast feed maybe something you ate is doing it or if he is formula fed maybe he needs to try a different kind. To be honest if he does poop every couple days and he is a newborn I wouldn't be to worried. But if it goes more than 3 days I would call a dr. Hope this helps!

if your son is only a baby, up to at least 3 months that can happen. his body is just getting used to the milk and sometimes the formula can cause slight constapation.

give him boiled water cooled down, that should help, if your extremly worried go to your health advisor and ask her what she thinks is best.
