What's the MN record for poo-free days with a BF baby?

My big, healthy 5 month old is now on day 11 without a poo. No discomfort, no problem eating, sleeping etc (although he is teething big-style).
I know that there's nothing wrong with him, but it would be reassuring to hear how long other babies have been between poos......

DD did 7 a few weeks ago. Then there were about 3 full nappies in a row and a massive sleep! Be prepared wink

14 days here. From about four weeks to 16 weeks he went every 14 days. I think mainly cos he was on infant gaviscon for reflux symptoms which is known to cause bowel slowness. It was... interesting when he finally wnet. The smell was like a wall hitting you, and there was quite literally two weeks worth in the nappy - it went everywhere. Second Riven's suggestion, you might want to stay close to home or pack multiple changes of clothes!

DD1 regularly went 13 days without a poo when bf, she'd get more and more grouchy and windy and finally would let it go.
she splattered a friend's wall with a poo explosion once
destroyed any clothes she was wearing
what a relief when she finally went though!

btw now age 5 she can still go quite a few days without a poo.
