Mucous in Stool
My baby is 2.5 months old. He has this problem of runny stools with mucous for over 3 weeks now. We consulted a paediatrician and she sensed that CMPI (Cow milk protein intolerance) could be the reason to it.
The blood traces in the stool are now not seen, but
mucous is still there. The child is otherwise ok. Please suggest what
could be done? Is mucous in the stool ok?

Yes, this is okay. If your baby is happy and is growing and eating well, you don’t need to worry too much about it. There are many moms that notice a few mucous stools. It is not always a need for concern. Most times, when Baby starts to eat solids, the sliminess disappears.
