Answer: There are no hard and fast rules. In the early months it will depend on whether you're breastfeeding or formula feeding your baby. Breastfed babies who are not on solids may passstool four times a day or more, or only once every six to seven days. All variations between these extremes is considered normal as long as the stools are soft and your baby is gaining enough weight.  Formula-fed babies normally need to poop every day to feel comfortable and avoid constipation. Lots of babies strain and cry a bit when they poo, but it doesn't mean there's a problem. As long as your baby's stool is soft and easy to pass, there's no cause for concern. 
Answer: You need not worry if the baby doesn't pass stools for 10 days if the baby is given ONLY breast milk. This is what our paediatrician advised . And it's true. You stay cool. My baby once didn't pass stools for 6 days when she was one and half months old .
