Your Baby & Toddler - - Newborn -

Blood in the stools can be the re­sult of con­sti­pa­tion. It is caused by anal fis­sures (cuts) that oc­cur when your baby is strain­ing to push a hard stool out. There may also be mu­cus present. If there’s more than just a few drops of blood, or if the stools don’t soften or the bleed­ing doesn’t stop, call your doc­tor.
