To diagnose digestive system problems, it's best to request a stool sample be examined under a microscope. It's possible that the mucous has been caused by something in your son's diet ... does it still occur?

Passing stool with visible mucus can be from a variety of problems. The best thing to do if you think your son needs medical attention is to take him to the doctor. Here is a link to more information.

MUCUS IN STOOLS
look up natural constipation cures , ultimately she has a inbalance in the digestive tract & she needs to hydrate better.

Organic foods, less processed foods and childrens probiotic has helped my 4 year old daughter. Its been hard to transition to a different diet since she only likes a handful of things. Another thing I give her a Flintstones vitamin every day. If I could get her to like water - we'd have it made! Id still see a doctor to rule anything out but the above was rec by a naturalpathic doctor & has helped for us.
