Hi Lia ... thanks for the question.
Defecation in children needs to get attention especially if defecation is liquid,> 3x a day, there is blood or mucus, greenish. Slimy bowel movements in children can be caused by dysentery. Dysentery can be caused due to bacterial infections or because of amoeba. Symptoms that appear are diarrhea accompanied by blood or pus, nausea and vomiting, as well as pain in the stomach, can also be accompanied by fever. Apart from dysentery can also be due to food allergies. Food allergies can cause complaints such as itching, redness, digestive disturbances where the frequency of bowel movements increases and there can also be phlegm or blood in proteins.
If your child's bowel remains slimy, there is a fever, the child becomes fussy, appetite and drinking decreases, the child becomes limp and inactive so check the child immediately to a pediatrician so that the doctor can do a direct examination and if necessary can be followed by stool check. Apart from that what you can do is:
Inadequate water needs of children to avoid dehydration
Keep food and children's eating utensils clean
Do not give medication without doctor's advice
Give nutritious food to children
