Brief Answer:
It is common for babies of this age to pass motion even once in 7 days

Detailed Answer:
Hi...It is common for babies of this age to pass motion even once in 7 days. If you are feeding the baby by formula feeding also then this issue will be even more pronounced.

Nothing to worry if the baby is feeding normally and passing urine normally without green or bilious vomiting.

Hope your other kid's fever has settles now (about whom we interacted on August 26th).

Hope my answer was helpful for you. I am happy to help any time. Further clarifications and consultations on Health care magic are welcome. If you do not have any clarifications, you can close the discussion and rate the answer. Wish your kid good health.
