Brief Answer:
Don't worry if there is no other significant abnormality

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query and do understand your concern.
I won't get worried if baby is feeding well, passing urine/stool, there is no vomiting, abdominal distension and other wise baby is active and playful.
Excessive crying in a baby not explained by other symptoms can be due to abdominal colic.
I would like to give colicaid drops which helps in relieving abdominal colic and also soothes the baby.
The usual dose for this age is 10 drops three times a day.
Watch closely and if you notice any significant abnormality please consult your pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more questions.
Regards

Brief Answer:
It's normal for this age

Detailed Answer:
Passing stool once in 3-5 days or 7-8 times per day is normal in this age unless it is too hard,mixed with blood or associated with vomiting or abdominal fullness.
I would like to know if the thyroid test has been done or not as hypothyroidism is a common cause of infrequent stool.
