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

1 doctor agrees

In brief: 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.
