    Have you started giving your LO vitamins recently? If they have iron in them it can constipate your baby for a little while.

    Are there a lot of wet diapers?

    from that link
    In addition, most young babies will have at least two to five bowel movements every 24 hours for the first several months, although some babies will switch to less frequent but large bowel movements at about 6 weeks.

    the womanly art of breastfeeding says the poops should be bigger then a us quarter.

    every baby is different and i am no expert but my son poops about 1 time every 6 days or so and my pedi says that is fine. he is on all breastmilk and almost 6 months old. he stopped pooping "all the time" at about 8 weeks. i didn't see how old your baby was. my first son, on all breastmilk would poop about 4 times a day so i thought my 2nd son had problems but nope!
