Mucus on stools: You might need to have stool sample at the pediatric clinic, possible reasons , infections or milk intolerance. Assure good hydration. Breastfeeding recommended of possible or change formula to a soy base or hypoallergenic formula.

If you are breast feeding, then the bowel movements will be slightly loose . But if there is mucus and the baby is irritable, see the doc
