Normal: The stool color is provided by the bile from the liver that is adds to fecal debris. It starts out a deep green & slowly changes thru greens to yellows to browns as the germs in the intestines metabolize the bile. Green generally means the stool in question moved through faster or was subject to less change by gut germs. ...Read more

Why would a 2 month old baby have mucus poop?

Why would a 2 month old baby have mucus poop?

Allergy or normal: If the baby is feeding well and there is no blood in the stool or unusual vomiting or other signs of illness, then it may be normal to have a mucousy stool from time to time. 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

My 8 week old baby have brownish mucus in her poop. What is that and where do it come from?

Mucous in the stool: Is this mucous a one time event or happening a lot? Is the baby having many (10-12) stools a day and are they watery? Are you breastfeeding or formula feeding?

Baby is 6 weeks old and been fussy all day. Not wanting to eat much, cries when eats. Poop is mustard/seedy w/ dark mucus and a tiny blood. Concern?

This may be fixable: This is the time and behavior associate with colic that is common. No one really knows the cause but I believe there are many different causes given a young infant digestive tract. Stools sound normal. As a normal stage, fussy times begin between 3 to 6 weeks, resulting in a unconsololable baby between 6/9 pm of age. These episodes usually last for one ...Read more

Had colic and green, bloody, mucus poops. Eliminated all allergens from my diet and gave reflux meds. Baby happy. Poop-no blood and orange. Why mucus still?

Had colic and green, bloody, mucus poops. Eliminated all allergens from my diet and gave reflux meds. Baby happy. Poop-no blood and orange. Why mucus still?

Inflammation: Likely caused the previous symptoms in your baby and you resolved these by adjusting your diet resulting in a happy baby with orange stool and ongoing mucous. Orange color to the stool is a variant of normal and of no concern. It will take longer for the mucous to stop as the inflammation that caused the bloody stools has to heal. Have your pediatrician check to see that your baby is growing and gaining weight well and that there is no longer traces of blood in the stool. Rarely a baby will have an enterocolitis caused by milk proteins and if present there will be traces of blood in the stool not necessarily visible. This is unlikely if the baby is comfortable and thriving. If you would like to discuss this in more detail feel free to contact me though Concierge at www. Healthtap. Com/freisleben

15month old son born with Gastroschisis. Recently sleeping&pooping more and its mucus like, green with undigested food. Has had bad nappy rash.

Symptom not specific: Stool color is driven by the dark green bile added to digestive debris. The poop will change through greens to yellows & then brown if the material spends enough time inside for gut germs to work on the bile. As such, the greenish color just means things moved through quicker. It is not specific to any cause. ...Read more

What does it mean if my baby's poop has mucous in it?

Possibly an allergy: Stools can be many different colors (yellow, brown and green) and can also be different consistencies. Occasionally, infant stools can also contain mucous. If your baby is happy, gaining weight and the stool does not have blood in it, it is probably normal. If not, it might mean that your baby has an allergy to something he/she is eating (usually cow's milk or soy protein). ...Read more

My 2 years old baby having black mucus stool?

Not normal: Black stools are not normal. While rarely a dietary cause may be found, most often black stools signify blood in the stools, blood that is coming from a little bit higher up in the GI tract. I would see your doctor soon to first check out if it is blood, and if so, find out why the child has this. ...Read more

I had white mucus in my stool white lines no sytoms feel fine I am in extreme hypochondriac so how can I tell if its real anxious I have a bad diet?

May not be serious: Sometimes a patient will complain of seeing 'mucus' in the stool and it turns out to be nothing or possibly irritable bowel syndrome. If it happens on a regular basis you should have it checked out by a gastroenterologist. In the meantime you could eat a better diet - more fiber, with fresh fruit and vegatables. ...Read more

Is it normal for a child to have mucus in stool after using an enema?

Is it normal for a child to have mucus in stool after using an enema?

Perhaps...: Enemas are almost never used in my pediatric practice, so the 1st concern is what triggered the need for an enema? I would never recommend an enema for your child unless specifically ordered by your pediatrician. The type of enema used may have caused the mucous--or perhaps this mucous was due to the irritant effect of whatever made the use of an enema necessary. If bloody, call your doctor now. ...Read more
