Mgt: Babies at this age breathe through their noses, so keeping the nasal passages clear is very important. Baby nasal saline with gentle suction can help.

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.

Probably!: Most babies pause breathing for 15 to 20 seconds in the first few months of life. If the breathing resumes spontaneously and there is no change in color it s usually normal. Make sure you take him to his doctor for a ceck up.

My 17year old son just had a 12 lead ECG done it showed t wave inversions in ii, iii, avf & v4. Could the barium from an ugi series cause this?

Nonspecific: T wave inversion may be part of a normal ekg and has to interpreted by a doctor. Inverted t wave is normal in iii and sometimes other leads without meaning anything alarming. Have the doctor let you know what they think. The ekg interpretation can change with age as well so you need expertise to read them at this age.
