Green slimy stools

Hi Dr. My 3 month old have got green slimy stools since Monday. Stools are not more than usual. She doesn''t have a fever, aren''t sluggish, drinking well and normal. She is also very alert and doesn''t look sick. Doesn''t look dehydrated as well.The stools are green slimy with little lumps in. I''m breastfeeding and haven''t taken anything strange. She is using Losec and buscopan for reflux and colic. I have started to give Reteuri. Should I take her to the dr? Should I be worried? Can it be teething? Thank you for your advice

Your baby's stools are probably normal.They are probably a bit softer then normal but are not watery. Your baby is not having more frequent stools than normal. Do not give her any Reuteri drops now.
