13 mo with mucus in poo

Does anyone have any experience of this? Google did not really shed any light.
He's well at the moment, but earlier in the week did have an episode of fever and floppiness.
Just changed his nappy and it was a smallish, slightly loose poo, with a bit glob of poo-coloured mucus in it
I'm not sure if I should be worrying or not!

Is he teething?

Yeah, he's got 4 molars which are all nearly through - never seen it before when teething, is it a standard teething thing?

We recently had this with DD. But it was accompanied by fever and stomach pain and turned out to be salmonella. Is the otherwise well?

DD only had the mucus when she was getting her back teeth, poor mite getting 4 at a time.

I think its caused by all the extra saliva.

He is perfectly fine at the mo, but did have the fever/floppy thing on Weds.
Will probably put it down to the teeth then. He has coped admirably well with 4 at once! Only 8 more to go....
