TMI- mucus in poo

What could this mean? She has been crying a ton, could this be a reflux sign? I have another thread about her fussiness, the poo is new

How old? A little mucous in newborns is OK if it goes away. Usually it means allergy/sensitivity. The big ones are dairy, soy, eggs, peanuts.... I always forget the other one or two....

She just hit 2 months. It's only been in a couple of diapers today but the last one was pretty nasty and jelly like...ewww. She hasn't been nursing well since last night either. Of course she was just at the doc Wednesday and had no poo issue or nursing problem, just super fussi and spitty

When my son had mucous in his stool, it was a sign of food allergies, but he also had blood and an allergy ring rash.

please forgive all typos due to auto correct's lack of mind reading abilities. :-)

Did she get the rota virus vaccine at her appointment? It frequently gives babies a mild case of rota virus, which looks a lot like you describe.

When my son was doing that he had developed a dairy allergy. Maybe eliminate dairy to see if it stops.

The doc was out of the vaccines so she hasn't gotten them yet. Guess I will try eliminating dairy. What should I not eat/drink besides the obvious? I don't drink milk, except for cream in my coffee, I eat cheese and yogurt. Thanks)

Google dairy elimination diet for dairy, there's a milk protein you should look for on labels but I can't remember the name!
