What Does It Mean If My Babys Poop Is Mucousy
Its Christmas!!! LOL: No really, it is usually some dietary change you have made, as long as the stool is fairly normal consistency - the color changes sometimes dramatically with changes in your diet. Should go back to normal in a day or two... As long as it is not black and tarry - that would be worrisome! have a great holiday! ...Read more
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 moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Newborn response: The obvious answer is that they are cold, but if they are very young, under 3-4 months, they are likely having a moro reflex, a primitive muscle reflex where moving them a little bit or jostling them causes the arms, legs, or jaw to "quiver" as if they are shivering.

Neurologic Disease: Constipation alone is quite common in infants. However, constipation with weakness is very worrying.

See your doctor: It could mean anything from high iron in your diet, iron supplementation, or an upper GI bleed. Black, tarry stool is called "melena", and is the signature for an upper GI bleed; i would get it evaluated by a doctor soon, and if it is persistent or is associated with fatigue, low blood pressure, high heart rate, or bleed elsewhere, i would go to the er quickly. ...Read more
