Answer:
yes, this is normal. sometimes they might not poop for three days at a stretch. from my own experience, my daughter once pooped after one whole week. until the time the baby is active and taking breast milk appropriately, do not worry. also, i am hoping and presuming that the baby is on exclusive breastfeed and no top milk or water or any ghutti.
