Hello, there is no need for concern. Pooping daily is not necessary if the stool is not very firm or hard consistency. Please wake up for feed every 2-3 hours if sleepy and give feed if sucking well, head propped up a bit. Transition to a set bowel habit will take some time. Please check weekly weight.
