Hi all. I took my 10 m/o DS to the DR.s as for past 2 weeks his bowel movements have been very odd. Frequent pooing and full of mucus - otherwise hes well. The Dr said its "toddler diarrhea" but I read that this is only occasional...also I understood lots of mucus in poo is bad? Does anyone know anything about this as Im still a bit worried despite what the doc said.

Has he had a cold ? dd is a bit variable but she is much older , almost 4. Definitely worse when she has catarrh or if the weather is warmer.

No. no cold...nothing else just really weird and smelly kind of foamy poo.

Teething ? Is it a really bitter smell ?

Yes he's smells fishy - really unpleasant (not that Ive ever smelt pleasant poo!!)

Lots of mucus in the poo suggests teething as well.

Does it? Good. Im a first time Mum and panic at the slightest thing

The teething makes them drool, and they swallow as much as they dribble ... so it ends up in their poo.
