Hi Because breastmilk is so nutritious, sometimes almost all of it is absorbed, leaving little to move through the digestive tract. Stools may come only once in a while  perfectly normal breastfed infants may only have a bowel movement once a week. Other infants just have a slower (but completely normal) gut, so they don't go very often. However, if your baby seems to be in pain or you have any concerns,Consult pediatrician they will help you further Regards
