Infant with sudden crying, poops after waking up, screaming. What is wrong and should I be concerned?

I have a 3 month old baby girl. I breast feed her. She s woke up and seemed fine then all the sudden starts crying and poops a lot. It looked like it normally does (dark yellow-runny) just a lot. Then she starts screaming like something is hurting her. I dress her and every little move she cries. She then starts grunting like she s pooping and crying. When I change her it s very yellowish orange and mucus . What is wrong and should I be concerned? Thank you.

Hello Jamie,

Thanks for posting,
It seems your baby is having a neonatal colic which could be normal if it lasts for a couple of hours. But if the stool becomes frequent with mucus then it is surely something you should definitely be worried about. Your baby might be having a gastroenteritis (which is very likely given that you were breast feeding her and i assume you were keeping all hygiene). Just keep breast feeding her and no more worries, as it is likely that your baby is having a neonatal colic that will go away on its own.
Please if the baby continuous having the colic, do visit a pediatrician as soon as possible.

Wish you the best
