What does it mean if my baby's poop has mucous in it?

Call your doctor: Mucousy poop may not mean anything at all, but the one thing that mucousy poop can indicate that can be concerning is a cow's milk protein allergy (either from mom ingesting it or cow's milk based formula). There is also the possibility of a stool infection but that's more rare.
