Hi! My six month old is teething. He s on neocate and pure baby rice only but the past two days he s been passing mucous in stools and today he had more than six stools..what could it be? Not an allergy as I haven't fed him anything new. An infection?? I'm freaking out..please help and tell me it's just an infection because of teething :-(

It certainly can be from teething. When they teeth, they drool more. The old wives tale is that when they teeth, they swallow their drool, and can get diarrhea. I have actually noticed this when both my children teeth. But because your son has a medical condition along with it, I would call your pediatrician just to make sure he is ok.
