Many experts believe for best health your child should have a “Type 4” bowel movement at least once/day. (see Bristol Stool chart)
However according to WebMD, the definition of constipation is as follows:
The normal length of time between bowel movements varies widely from person to person. Some people have them three times a day. Others have them just a few times a week. Going longer than 3 or more days without one, though, is usually too long. After 3 days, your poop gets harder and more difficult to pass.
