Is it normal to be seeing mucus in your two months baby
Nurse Muizat Hameed
Seeing small amounts of mucus in baby's poo is at most times not a cause for concern. This is because the walls of the intestine secretes mucus which may pass out with stool once in a while. Therefore, one or two days of passing that kind of stool shouldn't be worrisome.
However, if the mucus filled stool continues for like a week, then it could be painting out to diarrhoea, allergies or change in diets of the mother. It could also be pointing out to change in the pattern of breastfeeding.
If you still find it difficult to determine what is the cause, especially if the stool persists, kindly visit a paediatrician.

It is important to note that most cough and catarrh in children and adults are due to viral infection, which runs it's course and stops on its own. Therefore the use of medication is not necessary.
For babies having cough and catarrh you keep child warm by avoiding exposure to cold with frequent baths or cold baths or exposure to direct fan or too cold ac in the room. Avoid smoke and people with cough and catarrh. If baby should develop breathing difficulties kindly take to see a paediatrician.
What drug can 2 months plus baby use for serious cough and catarrh?
None ma, just keep your baby warm and continue exclusive breastfeeding.

It is very normal. Baby dictates your sleeping time now so learn to curl in bed and sleep when he is sleeping so that you can be alert for him at night. He will change soon.
