Thank you for all the input.
Passing of stool every 3-5 days in a baby can be normal.
Some baby can pass stool once a week without any problem.
As long as baby is passing gas, no abdominal distension, no need to worry.
Sometimes, in formula feeding, baby can be dehydrated, which leads to constipation
For first few days breast milk can be less. But if the baby sucks in breast directly, more milk will be produced to meet the demand.
Tell your daughter to try on breast more.
You can wait to see whether he passes stool spontaneously.
Otherwise, you can give glycerin suppository for easy passage of stool.
If you notice that the baby is pushing very hard or have pain, distension of abdomen then check with doctor to exclude any organic cause.
