In Diarrhea important thing is watch for Dehydration Sign. (low urine out put,sunken eyes, Absent tear less, drowsiness, Lethargic, Abdominal distention, Restlessness etc)

Colour of stool is pink and mucus , its indicated bacterial infection and it required antibiotic to recover infection.

I would advice :
Proper hygine.
Exclusively Feeding.
Watch for Dehydration sign
Consult with pediatrician.
Watch for weight , whether it incresed/ decreased/maintain.

Thanks :
