In brief: Maybe ok; inform Dr.
Babies older than a week have yellowish poops with the thickness of mustard or thick spaghetti sauce.
Breastfed babies have looser poops. Formula-fed babies have firmer poops. Poop gets darker, with brown/green colors blended in, and also gets firmer, as a baby gets older. A healthy, happy baby who gets mucousy or sticky poop less than once a month is likely normal, but parents should tell the dr.
