  • I would call the doctor and ask the doc. pooping mucus is not normal i have never heard of that before. I would say if she was just pooping bright green poop no worries just means she sick and she will be fine. but mucus...call the doc

  • well pooping mucus can be bad, dehydration is aserious problem. and if its been a couple days take her to an urgent care clinic or emergency room.

  • I have 5 kids and can't remember that ever happening. Has your child been eating? I'd say take her to the doctor.

  • If she was dehydrated I heard she wouldnt pee as much and when she did it would be almost brownish. but she pees just fine and nothing wrong with the color of the Pee. And Yeah shes been eating. but nothing diff then what she usually eats.

  • I took her to the hospital. They said every thing is fine that she is young and her stool will change. just to give her clear liquids for a couple days.
