Brief Answer:
Please get a stool test done

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the details. Green colored stool with mucus can be due to infection.There are other causes of green colored stool which don't need any specific treatment.
Weight gain during initial month is about 20-30mg/kg/ day. So the weight gain of your baby is appropriate.
Most common cause of excessive cry in this age is colic and colimax acts well in colic. Other causes of crying can be nonspecific pain that can be managed well with paracetamol drops. Ibuprofen should be avoided in early infancy unless needed.
So if this episode recurs I would like to give colimax 10 drops with paracetamol drops 10 drops.
Please get a stool routine and microscopy test done to rule out infection if any.
You may give some probiotics like enterogermina as it helps in maintainance of normal gut flora.

I hope this helps.
Please let me know if you have any more query.
Regards
