Normal infants have extremely variable stooling habits. It is not unusual for some babies to open their bowels just once a week; the key to this problem is that if the child is not irritable or crying excessively, you need not worry. However, if she is irritable or crying a lot, you might want to administer a small dose of a laxative to help her open the bowel.
