    Morning ladies, JJ has had a bit of mucas-y bloody in 2 of his nappies in the last 24 hours. I'm not a fan of "googling"! Can anyone advise if it could just be a little straining or dehydration?? I'm giving him an oz of water between feeds if he'll take it. My Drs aren't open til tmrw...

    Thanks in advance...xx

    I'd give someone as call as well.

    James had blood from his bum when he was really struggling to get his stools out (weaning poo's are horrid!) it was on the babywipe not in his nappy and it was just the once.

    I posted here and the lovely ladies said if you find blood in actual stools it's always best to get a second opinion

    Always best to be safe than sorry. Even if he seems absolutely fine I know I'd be panicking until someone reassured me all was well xx

    I'd give NHS direct or GP out of hours a ring just to make sure.

    It could just be from straining if he's been a bit bunged up, but still worth checking.

    Is he BF as sometimes blood from cracked nipples etc can get into their poo that way.

    Mucus blood poo would hint towards a food allergy/intolerance to me so I would go to a&e xx dont worry tho they can put him on a different milk or advise u on ur diet if bfing if it is an allergy xx

    I'd personally go straight to the childrens hospital, a&e as after spending all night in one with lo last night, it could have been so much shorter if I'd of gone straight there instead of wasting time with the useles out of hours dr. I'd want to be seem as soon as poss personally cx

    Thanks everyone. I phoned NHS direct and they told me to keep him hydrated (which I thought I was doing!) - and to keep an eye on all nappies - if anymore have blood in today or overnight, to take him to the dr for an emergency appt first thing tmrw. He has had 3 bowel movements since the bloody one this morning...no more blood. Hoping its just a case of straining. Thanks ladies xx

    I took Toby to a&e for this when he was small. They reckon it was as a result if straining. If your little one doesn't have a temp (you should monitor daily for the next few days) then it's unlikely to be anything serious. Sounds like you're doing all the right things x
