6 month old passing mucus filled stools. Could this be due to teething?

Hi, my daughter Raegan is 6 months old, and will be 7 months on the 11th of April. She is bottle fed, and she recently started passing mucous-like stool . It s very watery, and I didn t know if it was diarrhea or not, but it has been going on for almost a week now. Today, it started to turn orange-ish. Im just wondering is it serious enough to make an appointment, or is it because she is teething .

Thanks for your query.
Most likely cause of her diarrhea is infection.
Teething per se should not be blamed.
In the absence of pain,fever,vomitings or blood in stool you can easily wait for 3-4 days & if there is significant mucus , get her stool checked for microscopy & occult blood.
Hope you find the information useful.
