i have asked this question before. my ds has stinky stinky movements now. they are covered in mucous and inside as well. if you smash it it is almost like paste, but stretchy like gum. and the stinch, it is most horrible.
i called the ped. he said to feed ds yogurt"assuming for the colon" but this hasn't helped. he eats apples, plums, grapes, oranges, and has a decent diet.
does any one else have this problem with a two year old?
this sounds like an allergic poo.
My dd has several food allergies, and when they come up it smells like toxic waste. Sweet, sickly, disgusting, and covered in mucus.
I would avoid dairy - which produces mucus - and give acidophilous. Is she well otherwise?
he hasn't eaten anything unual. fruits may cause mucous, but typically they will be firm because of the fiber.
he doesn't drink a whole lot of milk anymore we have to make him drink it so i don't think it is that. also yogurt baterias brake down normal milk stuff so i don't think it is a dairy allergy.
he only got the sinus drip about 4 days ago, before that he had been dry as a cup outside on a hot summer's day.
ds has had a history of frequent respiratory track infections, and pneumonia 1 x, rsv, yada yada. do you think he could have had the drip for longer and me not notice. BUT, there is a lot of mucous, could this REALLY come from his nose?
my ds had thick mucus like you describe from 3 to 6 months. Only got better when we gave him neocate, dairy free formula, and probiotic. I would really try cutting out dairy just to see if it works, you can always reintroduce it later.
