Possibly TMI question about poop!

How often are BF'd babies supposed to poop? I'd read that it was normal for them to often go several days without a poop just because BM is digested so efficiently. However, Elena almost always has at least one poop, and quite often 2, even 3, in one day! Is this okay?

Oh yes! I think pretty much any poop once a week+ is normal. We actually talked about this at my mom's group today. James poops anywhere from 1-5 times a day I think. There was one mom in our groups who's baby poops once a week, and another who's baby (5.5 months) just stopped pooping 8-10 times a day. Anyway, I think anywhere in that range is pretty normal, different babies just respond differently to breastmilk, but I wouldn't worry that she was pooping too much unless it got just really ridiculous like diarrhea or something. I think Elena sounds super normal for this age. HTH!!
