Blood in 3wk olds poop?

I was changing my dd a few min ago and I wiped her and there was blood on the wipe so I looked to see id her butt was irritated and it wasnt from there. So I looked closer to her poop and there was streaks of blood in it. It looked like it was just mixed in with in. It is hard to explain. I called the dr and am waiting for a call back but I am worried. Any idea what it could be? It wasnt hard poop either it as loose and the last little but was watery sorry I know tmi sorry but I am really worried I have never seeni it before in my other 2 kids.

  • Call her pedi's office & tell them! They'll probably want you to come in. I don't know what it would be, but good luck!
