My 4 mo old has had some mucus in her stool, but her stool is not green.  What does this mean?  Does it have to be green to for a food sensitivity.  I am on a restricted diet - no sugar, no gluten, no casein, no soy, and limited eggs.  I did have 2 eggs this morning, and she had quite a bit of mucus in her stool at 2 pm.  Would it show up that quickly?  She is otherwise happy and the stool is the same mustard color it has always been.

doesn't have to be green to be a food sensitivity.  Most babies will have a random mucusy stool here and there, so I woudn't wonder about just one.  If it persists, then it may be a food sensitivity.  You could watch for an egg correlation.
