Two week old infant, breast fed exclusively, not having bowel movement

How long has it been? BF baby should have two poops a day. Now a poop can be a small smear or a colossal blowout. Breastfed babies don't get constipated. Is baby making at least 6-8 wet diapers, and appear hydrated. Does baby latch on well and make little gulping or swallowing sounds when eating? Is baby nursing on demand, but at least every 3 hours for 10 minutes each side, and seem satisfied after a feeding? If baby is doing all of these things I'd give it maybe 12 more hours before calling the doctor.
