Poop :poop:: This can be a normal stool for a 3 month old. What is the baby drinking? Breastmilk/formula or a combination of both. Is there are discomfort with the BM? The mucous can be from what she swallows from her nose. Check with your pediatrician, from what you have described, it doesnt sound like an allergy.
