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.

Call the doctor: Smelly or mucousy poop may not mean anything at all. I had one parent that said their baby's poop smelled, but i smelled it and it was fine. 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 bacterial infection but that's more rare.

How can I help bring up mucous when I cough?

Increase Fluids: It depends on the cause of the cough but i would recommend increasing fluids. However, i would avoid dairy which seems to increase mucous production. And i would also use a guiafenesin type cough syrup which helps break up mucous. Finally, if it is a dry inflammatory cough you may need to use an anti-inflammatory inhaler or medicine as in asthma or copd.

Sphincter tone: We have 2 sphincters that prevent stool from coming out. One is internal, the other is external. As long as one is working, stool should not come out. If you have had children, you could have damaged these sphincters. Diabetes, ms, infectious diarrhea can cause incontinence.
