May need to test the: If breast feeding this may be normal but if truly seeing mucus you may want to have the stool tested. Allergies to formula could be causing some inflammation and a change may be needed. Some simple tests could help evaluate.

Call Your Doctor: A child with blood in the stool should always be examined. Some common causes include food allergies, constipation and infection. Bring the diaper to your office visit. Your doctor may want to test the stool for infection.

Varies: Breastfed babies can poop after every feeding, with every feeding, once a day, every other day, and "all the time." as long as its soft and they are feeding well and gaining weight, this is all normal.

Maybe !: This type of question is really almost impossible to answer accurately without seeing the bumps. You should show it to your pediatrician, who when seeing the bumps should be able to give a more definitive answer. " probablys and maybes" are not really good enough.
A member asked:

Should I give my daughter the MMR vaccine?

6 doctor answers62 doctors weighed in
Dr. Anatoly Belilovsky
Pediatrics 35 years experience
Yes: Research linking MMR and autism has always been questionable, and has now been shown to be fraudulent. Live vaccines such as MMR should not be given to children with seriously impaired immunity such as organ transplant, aids and cancer (not frequent colds), and certain very rare conditions. For all others, risks of vaccine refusal enormously outweigh the risks of the vaccine itself.
