It also contains mucous means there's is a infection or irritation. Until examination is done it is difficult to say what it is. During tooth eruption there is possibility of loose stools. it may be due to infection.

If baby not sleeping or not taking food intake along with mucous stools means you have to consult your pediatrician he will examine and treat you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
