Thanks for your reply. The last few nappies have been fine. I'll just keep an eye on it!

Oh btw i am not suggesting Salmonella or anything like that (dont panic!) just that when the stomach is irritated i believe you can sometimes get blood streaked poo.

No nappy rash internally as far as i am aware but i had the same with DS around the same age and i took a stool sample to the doctors - they didn't even send it off.

They just said that his stomach/bowel was probably irritated and if it happened again or in the next few days to come back but it didn't.

DD had salmonella that she supposedly caught from the school bathroom (admittedly she was 14 at the time) and had loads of blood in her stools - that was resolved in a few days thank goodness.

Try not to worry but just keep an eye on it - if it happens anymore then take her back with a stool sample if you can. HTH smile

Just got back from the doctors with my DD and the doctor said that it was likely to be nappy rash- even though the nappy rash is not severe, has only appeared in the last day or so and there is no broken skin. The last two nappy changes we have had lots of normal poo streaked with a few dark red blobs. DD not in distress when she passes stools and doesn't have a temperature and is EBF. She did have her first set of injections last week, but don't think this is connected. Doctor said not to worry and gave me some nappy rash cream. Just wondered is this normal- can you get nappy rash inside the bowel as it were? Any advice appreciated, first baby and worried.
