My baby is 2.5 months old. Normally he poops anywhere from 2-8 times per day. Today he did not poop at all. He has been eating fine and seems full and satisfied. He weighs 15 pounds at 2 months. LOL But I want to double check that its ok that he has not pooped today. His diaper has been wet at every change.

In an exclusively bf baby - poopy dipes (after the first few weeks) can be very infrequent and still be considered "normal", as long as the wet dipes keep coming, you are fine. Both Dr. Sears and kellymom have good info on this.

My dd has personally gone as long as 11 days b/n poops - completely normal.

Yep, a BF baby can sometimes go a day or more between poops. My DSs started skipping some days right around that 3 month mark...their growth also slowed a bit during this time as well. I wouldn't be alarmed unless the wet diapers lessen or baby seems uncomfortable.

Mine started around that age to poop 1x a day/1x every other day and also the color changed from yellow to more brownish. It's normal.

Oh, also wanted to say that I read somewhere (kellymom?) that that is about the time that colostrum decreases/goes away in the milk supply and colostrum acts as a laxative, therefore producing more poops in the first couple months, less after. HTH.
