My almost 3 year has had a very runny stool all day and the last diaper had blood mixed with mucous in it.  Should I take to ER?

Have you called your doctor yet? If you haven't, call the office and speak to a nurse. If you don't have a doctor, then yes, take him to the ER. It could be something along the lines of his/her digestive tract isn't working properly, or could just need more fiber. When it comes to babies and toddlers (who can't exactly describe what they're feeling) it's always best to talk to your doctor.
