Thanks for your query to XXXXXXX

I would advice you, not to bother too much about the stool content, as long as the consistency is normal. It doesn’t contain blood or too much mucous, not painful, not associated with vomiting or abdominal pain.

Only if the problem persists for few days, you need to visit a pediatrician & confirm that nothing abnormal is happening. Sometimes it could be a foreign body which he could have swallowed, since toddlers are curious in exploring their surrounding by putting objects in their mouth frequently. For the moment nothing looks serious, be vigilant.

If you have any further queries, I’m happy to assist you, if no kindly close the query & rate it.
Take care,
