Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. To be able to know the condition of the baby, it is important for us to pay attention to everything about it, including among them regarding bowel habits and the characteristics of the stool.
Regarding your question, it's actually natural that the baby doesn't defecate every day, especially if he is breastfeeding using breast milk. This is because the milk content is very good and almost completely absorbed by the body. As long as your child is still urinating regularly, it's okay to defecate once every few days. In children with formula milk, the bowel can indeed be more frequent, but once every 2-3 days is not a problem.
The frequency of bowel movements that are suspected of having constipation or difficult bowel movements in infants is once per week, and is accompanied by other symptoms such as fussy babies when defecating, appearing to push, red face when defecating, and the stools are small, dry and the consistency is hard. So because the characteristics of your child's stool are still not up to this point, chances are there really isn't a problem.
Even so, if you are in doubt, it doesn't matter if you want to have your child seen by a pediatrician for further examination. Meanwhile, keep breastfeeding him whenever he asks, and keep away from dust, pollution and sick people. So, hopefully answering your question.
