hello :)
did you notice change of smell of her stools , becoming fuel or bad smell more than before?
and is there some mucus (like that coming out of nose when having cold) ?

if there are something of that in the stool , please do stool analysis for her

if nothing like that, andit is just change in texture (may be slight diarrhea) , it is may be due to teething , make sure that sh takes fluids plus breast feeding, and you may give her oral rehydration solution for once daily if you notice slight dehydration

I hope she get better soon
