2 Month Old Baby Poop Color
What are some reasons for an infant to have mucousy stool? He's 3 1/2 months old and i've only noticed it once so far, but its making me nervous!

However, mucus may be a sign of allergy to a component of infant formula, or in some cases something in mom's milk. If this happens rarely, probably not a big concern. If frequent, consider discussing with pediatrician. ...Read more
