After her 1st imms last monday my little girl seams to be distressed when pooing and there are small trace's of mucas in her poo. Is this a normal development, after effects of her imms or something else? Can anybody help?

Found this info for you:
Mucousy poo:
# Might be interlaced with mucus
# Substantial amounts of mucus might be passed, but not necessarily as part of the poo
# Babies pass mucous when they have a cold or runny nose due to excessive mucous being swallowed
# Might be accompanied by abdominal pain
# Might seem to pose no problems whatsoever
# Might be accompanied by substantial amounts of semi or undigested food.

What to do
# If there is only a small amount of mucus, and your baby seems well, don’t worry about it
# If the baby is sickly or vomiting see your doctor immediately
# If you are breastfeeding, look at your own diet to see what effect it has on your baby’s nappy contents

Really, when it comes to poo, just keep an eye on things for a nappy change or two. Sometimes, they hit lumo-green runny poo, other times, peanut-butter consistency and khaki green.
Only worry if there is obvious pain [as opposed to discomfort] - normally these things work themselves out :)

Watch it - mucous could be from a bit of a snotty nose, or from eating too much or too little. Don´t worry unless it causes her pain [in my opinion], and just keep an eye on it.

My daughter has had mucas in her poo while accompanying a cold. Not a big deal, for your own peace of mind ask your doctor, every kid is different. Both my kids go through poop changes after their imms.

I don tknow if this has anything to do with what you're experiencing but but when Allison was about 2 months old, I experienced the same thing but then it was accompanied by traces of blood. Come to find out she's allergic to the milk protein

My son gets this occasionally - quite a bit of mucous mixed in with loose poo. I suspect he gets it from eating a lot of fruit or beans but not sure.
