My 4 week old is exclusively breastfed and had a day when his poos were green and kinda gelatinous. Theyve gone back to being mustardy and seedy, but I have notice that if I open the nappy, it seems to be kinda "sticky" ...
Is this mucus??? I am assuming the gelatinous bit was mucus before, but I can't for the life of me tell if it's still mucusy.

How do I know if it's mucus or not?

DD1's poos were green and she is cows milk protein allergic. They used to be frothy too when she was very young. As far as I know green poos are a sign of dairy problems. Dunno about the mucus though, we didn't have a problem with that until she was on solids.

Frothy green poos can also be a sign of lactose overload. Check out the ABA website which has an article on it.

I've found mucus poo is kind of like baby poo mixed with egg white, it has that stretchy/jelly like quality that egg white does.

All of mine get it when I over feed them or swap sides too much, I'm prone to over supply issues so I have to be careful to block feed, of course your bub is much littler than mine so best to get it checked if your concerned

Should also note that nothing has changed in my diet. Other than an increase in the amount f lychees I've been eating (I have almost a kg a night!) so going to try and stop that.. And hope it is just that..

Green, mucousy and/or frothy poos can be a sign that bub is not getting to the hind milk and is only getting the watery fore milk. Make sure he completely empties one side, before you offer the other side. Also can happen when bubs is comfort feeding a lot and just "snacking", so never has a proper feed, therefore not getting to the hind milk. I have had this problem myself, and concentrating on proper feeds fixed it within a couple days...
