It's perfectly normal. I breastfed all 3 of my kids and that's exactly how it's supposed to look at this stage. Don't worry, sounds like you're doing a good job =)

Yup she is good. If you are breast feeding then it should look like that and your baby will go often. Keep in mind any time you change their diet like introduce formula it well change again and they even get constipated for a few days. So don't worry it's all normal congrats

Make sure you have a Healthy diet. Whatever you eat, she consumes it also. You should prprobably increase your Fiber in take. Sometimes breastfeed babies don't poop every day.
