  • Babies have all kinds of weird poo, to be honest the strong smelling pee has me more concerned than the weird poop. Definitely at least tell your doctor and ask what it could be.

  • Slime in the stool is a problem. I would definitely make a visit to the doctor. His urine should not have a strong odor. Could it be something that you have eaten? Also, are you getting enough water everyday? Not cola, tea or juice, but glasses of water? Is he running a fever at all?

  • Urine (usually) smells strong when it is concentrated, which happens for a couple reasons. First, dehydration can cause dark yellow, strong smelling urine. Bladder and kidney infections can also sometimes cause urine to change color and odor. As far as the stool, when you said "slimy" do you mean that you see mucus? Or that it is just a slimy consistency? If you are seeing mucus in the stool, I strongly recommend calling his pediatrician right away. That is NOT normal, and should be checked out. Good luck, I hope he is ok!
