Bowel movements questions

How many bowel movements is average for a three week old? Mine seems to go twice a day, with lots of little "toots" in between. Is this okay?

My 3-week-old has 3 or 4 bigger bm's with lots of toots in between. I have no idea what's normal.

However, I do remember an advice nurse telling me that after the first month, they can go days in between bm's, and that's perfectly fine. So since we're getting close to a month, my guess is your baby is ok.

Anyone else?

"normal" ranges anywhere between pooping once every other week, to pooping every single time they nurse. Just depends on the baby, and how effectively they are digesting the breastmilk.
