    Brooke has developed a case of the runs this evening and im a little worried ...

    I dont know if babies are the same with the runs but her stools are verging on watery with lumps but its really mucusy ... ive never seem it before and its not very pleasant.

    Is that normal? Should normal runs be mucusy? Shes never had the runs before so i dont really know whats what :baby:

    If she has been drooling a lot it could well be from all the saliva. Apparently that can cause runny mucousy stools. Oscars poops have been like that since he started his droolathon.

    Byron's not been teething but he's occasionally had these muscousy runs. I don't think it's abnormal, not that the runs are desirable! He's had runs when he's been feeding too much and when he got really mucousy for a few days, maybe a bit of a cold or something, that made him throw up a lot too, which was also snotty. I wouldn't worry. As usual just make sure she's not dehydrated.
