The only blood my daughter ever had was when she was a newborn. It wasn't a lot just a very small amount and pink not a bright red. Come to find out it's pretty common in girls to have blood, it's from the mothers hormones.

If you see any blood in your baby's diaper you need to call your baby's doctor. They will ask if it is from the urine or the stool. What color is it? Sometimes there will be blood in a mother's milk from cracked nipples or trauma from using a breast pump and the baby will have blood in the stool from that. It is safe for the baby to have milk with blood in it and it will causes changes in the stools.
