No poop in 3 days

My 2-month old has not pooped in 3 days. Is this normal? He used to poop daily and then it became every two days, and now he hasn't pooped in three days. Any tips to try to induce pooping? TIA

My baby poops every 3-4 days and PD said it's normal. Some babies can even go without pooping for a week. As long as he doesn't look constipated, no change in the number of wet diapers, drinks his milk as usual, and when he poops, it's not hard or black in colour, shld be fine!

Okay that's a relief to hear. He's going on to 4 days now. Thanks for the reply!

if your baby just drink ASI. it's no problem, because the tolerance of pooping on baby ASIX is 10 days
