Poop question ? :-)

My 18 month old LG has like 3 poops a day for the last 3 days. It looks normal and is not runny, but it is a bit loose (but that''s normal for her). LOL. You can even see all her vegetables that she''s been eating, like the carrots and sweetcorn that she does not chew. Sorry - I''m being graphic about this. LOL. Anyway, this morning when I changed her as well it looks like there are some jelly pieces inbetween. What is that? It''s part of the poop and it just look very jelly-like. She''s absolutely fine. She eats me out of the house and she drinks her milk and she runs around. She is my little sunshine girl. Last night she started biting me and I could feel right at the back that there are humps and I think her last set of molars is coming in. It''s still early stages, not swolen as yet but you could feel the humps. She''s got all her teeth, just waiting for the last set of molars.

This is not due to teething. The most likely reason is this is an early sign of toddlers diarrhoea. This is usually due to too much fruit and fruit juice in the diet. Try stopping all fruit and juice for at least 3 days and see if her stools improve. If they do it would be best to keep her off any fruit juice.
