Now there is blood in her spit up. Once it was dark, kind of tinged the other times.

Nipples are minimally sore and not cracked or bleeding.

Im going to take her in but wanted to see if anyone has experienced this? Im worried sick :(

I'm a pediatrician and have seen this a few times with babies who swallowed maternal blood during delivery. That's why I asked how old she is. But definitely take her in to see the doc.

She has a home visit with a nurse tomorrow and her regular check up with the ped on monday. Do you think its okay to wait til the nurse comes tomorrow or no? She doesnt cry like she is in pain, poops are good, and she's nursing good. I propped her up after her last feed and she didnt spit up at all... i just dont know...

Given all that other info, it really doesn't sound like an emergency. Can you call the on call service at your peds office so you can at least have some peace of mind?

I did earlier and she said she recommends she be seen within 24 hrs. I told her the home nurse was coming tomorrow and she said i can wait, but if it happens again i should prob take her right in.

I think that's a good plan. Hopefully it wont happen again and you can stop worrying!
