    i think that is normal, my baby is like that too, though she is not fully breastfed. i have told the pd about this once, and he is okay about it. start worrying if there is no poo,, for 2 days in a row..
    i'd bring her to see pd, if there is no poo for 3 days in a row..

    Supposedly it is OK for breastfed babies to go for up to 2 weeks withoout a poo.
    Some babies are just super efficient, at using up everything.
    My little one used to go one every 4-5 days ( for some reason when I was out to lunch ) and it would be quite large.
    Once he started solids it changed to everyday.
