Answer: Hello dear. If stool has visible mucus or green in color it can be a sign of bacterial infections. It also happens if the baby is on more of formula milk. You can consult your pediatrician, so that the doctor would be able to treat this. Not to worry, your baby would be fine.
If your baby seems constipated, consider simple dietary changes: Water or fruit juice. Offer your baby a small amount of water or a daily serving of 100 percent apple, prune or pear juice in addition to usual feedings.
Few of the tips are:
Gently move your baby's legs in a cycling motion — this may help stimulate their bowels.
Gently massage your baby's tummy.
A warm bath can help the muscles relax (your baby may do the poo in the bath, so be prepared).
