Mucus in baby poo (nappy photo alert!!!)

DD is 4.5 months. She's always been unsettled, colicky, poor sleeper, not wanting to lie on her back.

She's EBF and gaining weight well. Recently she's gone from one poo a day to several and over the last few weeks there's been an increasing number of nappies with lots of mucus in them.

I think I've noticed she's more unsettled after I've eaten dairy and HV agrees mucus is not normal so giving dairy up to see if things improve.

Does thus sound likely? Would dairy intolerance cause mucus like this?

Haven't looked at the photo (eating dinner!) but my daughter had some serious mucus around 4.5 months and I thought exactly the same thing. It lasted about 10 days, she was pooing through the night. Never been a great sleeper so wasn't that different. It also coincided with given her formula for the first time. I cut out all dairy and freaked out she was dairy intolerant, took her to the doctor who advised waiting a few weeks till she was back to normal and try formula again and see how she got on.

We did so this weekend and she's been fine! Every night she's been having a good 3/4 ounces. So no it doesn't definitively mean she's dairy intolerant but I think the only way you can find out is to test them with a little and see?

The only thing I can amount it to is it was about a week after her 3rd set of jabs?
