3 year old have constipation, yellowish mucus in the urine. Need to go to the emergency?

My 3 year daughter sometimes has a rough time passing her biles, they come out really really large and look like they are in individual balls combined together in one large lump. Recently, she passed some yellow mucus when she went to urinate. A few minutes later she went to take a bile movement with no sign of the mucus. Should I be alarmed? Should I take her to the ER?

Constipation is common among this age group and try to give plenty of oral fluids, add dietary fibre to diet and encourage the child to go toilet daily. These measures make stools soft and loose so that she will pass stool easily. Still its hard stool you can go for laxatives like lactulose after consulting your Pediatritian. And for mucus in urine go for complete urine examination to rule out any urinary infection after seeking the advice of your doctor.
