yes, sounds perfectly normal to me. As long as baby is happy and healthy, and the stool is soft, you dont need to worry. ;-)

Here are a few pages you can read...

Normal stools in formula and breastfed babies

Gassy babies and gas pain.

My daughter is now four months and one week old and she has not pooped since 7 days.

She is breastfed and once a day formula fed 60 ml a day but she pees normally.

She is not showing the sign of constipation. Is it normal?

Should I consult a doctor?

Hi Sangita

Some breastfed babies do only have one stool every 7 to 10 days. If the stool is not hard, you dont need to worry. Please refer to the links in my last comment.
