Message length 300 characters recommended

Constipation can cause bright red blood in the stool. The blood will usually be on the outside of the poop and it is caused by little tears in the rectum from the large stool coming out.

Large amounts of bright red blood in the stool often indicate a bacteria infection and your baby needs to see a doctor right away.

Mucousy blood in the stool can indicate a food allergy such as an allergy to dairy protein.
