    Default mucousy poops

    KA has been having mucousy poops every time she poops. is this normal for some lo's? she doesn't seem distressed at all which is why i haven't been concerned until now.

    is she teething? my lo has mucusy poops and my doc attributes it to the fact that he is drooling and swallowing much more saliva now that he's teething.

    sometimes it can indicate a food (particularly dairy) sensitivity as well - but I don't know much about that.

    When my babies have a little congestion...sometimes they have mucousy poop too. I wouldn't worry too much if she is acting normal and seems happy. It probably is just the teething.
