I changed the formula on my 3month old from Enfamil infant to Enfamil A.R He passes stools 5 times a day now: yellow thicker w/ mucus is that normal?

Yes

Puberty
The difference between the two formulas is that the AR contains a rice starch to "thicken" the formula a bit so that the baby doesn't spit up as much. This can increase fiber content in the stool, making the stools a bit thicker. 5 poops a day for a 3 month old is totally normal. Babies poop a lot!

12 weeks infant with mucous blood tinged stool?

Blood in stool

Baby
If your baby has not been checked by your pediatrician, please do so ASAP. If formula-fed, the most common cause is cow's milk allergy (regular formulas are cow-milk-based). Another cause could be bacterial infection. Some constipated babies can develop anal fissures.

Should I be worried about a green and seedy mucous stool in an infant?

STOOL

Sudden_infant_death
I think you are breast feeding. Breast milk stools are seedy, mucousy, sour smelly, usually yellowish or sometimes greenish due to extra bile in the stool. Bottle fed babies can also have similar stool. As long as baby is eating well, not sick, you don't have to worry.

Why mucous in infant stools sometimes accompanied by tiny blood strains. My baby is almost 5 months old . We have switched to goat milk one month ago.

Goat's milk has many

Vitamin_deficiency
of the same proteins as cow's milk, so babies can develop an allergy to it. Goat's milk has 1/5th as much Vitamin B12 & 1/10th as much folic acid as cow's milk. There's 1 mcg of folic acid/8 oz.of goat's milk. Babies need 75 -100 mcg daily. Some commercial brands of goat's milk formulas add extra folic acid. See your pediatrician for supplements or change of formula & evaluation of the bleeding.

My 2 years old baby having black mucus stool?

Not normal

Feces
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.
