Hi Priyanka, it is totally normal for a breastfed child to not poop for 5 - 6 days at a stretch too! So do not worry :)

hi priyanka is baby still exclusively bf? if so, no need to worry. u can bring it up in your next visit to the dr. as long as baby is not in any discomfort it is okay. if you see baby struggling and applying pressure then do meet your dr. tc

Priyanka mishra

Yes he applies pressure but not all the time; and he is exclusively on bf asha chaudhry

If the baby is exclusively breastfed, no poop for a week n poop many a times a day without foul smell is very normal.

Priyanka mishra

Yes he had foul smelling but when he near to do poop like smells 2days before..
