Hello Mr. Saiful Bahri,
Babies generally have different bowel patterns, especially breastfed babies. Exclusive breastfeeding babies have varied bowel movements from several times a day to only 1-2 times a week. Breastfed babies can have rare bowel movements, because breast milk is absorbed almost completely by the baby's body because it contains all the substances the baby needs. This makes feces / waste less. In addition, the baby's muscles for defecating are not well coordinated, so the baby can appear to be pushing but not yet effective.
As long as the baby still looks active, is gaining weight well, urinating at least every 6-8 hours, doesn't seem in pain, you don't need to worry. As his age increases, especially during solids food, his bowel movements will be more regular. But to make sure there are no health problems in your baby, you should still get your baby checked by a pediatrician. Likewise, if your baby consumes formula milk, you should consult a pediatrician.
If there are other complaints, such as a baby with fever, when you have a hard and bloody bowel movement, you are fussy, your stomach looks enlarged and you look in pain, you should immediately consult a pediatrician to get appropriate treatment. Keep weighing your child once a month to the posyandu and immunization according to schedule.
