A 29-year-old female asked:

My 12 week old daughter has loose stools with brown mucous on and off for a week now, apart from that she has been drooling a lot lately she is fine?

Drooling is normal: The salivary glands kick into full gear around this age, so a sometimes dramatic increase in drooling is not uncommon and is normal. You should see her pediatrician for the stools.
