It's normal when baby is on BF to pass stool once in 8 to 10days also.. may be baby is having gas issues.. u can apply hing paste or castrol oil on baby's naval to release gas, u can do some massage also, check YouTube video on it.
What medicine ur giving? Is baby on BF or Formula?

Hey Rewa,why do you think its a problem if he poops every alternate day? Does he become a lot gaseous? Crankiness could be due to various reasons. Have you tried applying heeng on navel? Exercises like cycling motion and bending knees towards stomach. Tummy time..all this helps in getting relief from trapped gas. Do burp the baby often in upright position,you can also start by having him sit for a few seconds or minutes with support. Its quite normal for exclusively breastfed kids to pass motion once in several days. But if you are really concerned,see if you have changed something in your diet. Lets see how he progresses..
