My 7 week old only has a dirty nappy every 2 - 3 days does this seem ok? From what I can remember my DD had a few a day. He has been like this since about day 5. Thanks,

one of each is your baby bf or bottle fed? I know with bf babies it can be very normal for them not to poo every day wiht bottle fed babies its more normal for them to go at least once a day.

I think babies on the bottle usually go once a day as OP said. Would you give him a bottle of water with sugar to get him to go? Sorry never had this and I am sure the others will have more tips

Probably worth chatting to your PHN if you're worried. But from my experience with DD (combined fed at that age) we were told if the stools were soft and not causing her distress when they eventually came then there was no need to do anything to change her pattern
