I have noticed over the past few days that my toddlers stool contains mucus and I am concerned that it is a sign of an underlying condition.
IF it is an ongoing concern you should make an appointment with your doctor. Its usually caused by something they ate. If it continues make sure to exclude anything serious.
Mucous is a normal component of stool, but should not be present in sufficient quantity to be visible. In a toddler, it is best to see the pediatrician.
Small amounts of mucus in stool is normal, but I would definitely take your child to the doctor if there is a large visible amount. Could be bacterial infection, etc.
