my 3 month old baby boy faeces has blood ,what can be the problem

Expert's Reply

A.

Paediatrician

This can occur when your baby is constipated and if he passes a hard stool this may cause a small tear of his anus with bleeding. If he is not constipated then another cause of fresh blood in your baby's stools may be a milk allergy.There are other possible causes as well. In any case it would be best for you to take your baby to be seen by your paediatrician.
