Bleeding gums???

So, my dd is almost 11 months old & I believe she's been desperately trying to cut her upper 2 incisors. I've recently given her a frozen/cold wash rag to chew on to help alleviate her discomfort...& she loves it! However, today she was chewing on a white rag & I noticed some blood spots?!? Has anyone had this happen to their LO during teething, & is this even a normal teething occurance? I'm a first time mom, so I'm new to this. Thanks for any input!

I'm not sure. I'm a first time mom also and so son hasn't gotten any teeth yet.

 Yes this is normal. No need to worry. Sometimes I would notice a little red tinge to my dd's toothbrush when a tooth was coming in.

Oh yes, a little blood vessel got burst as the tooth puches through - no need to worry

Thank you ladies! I was confident that's what it was, but I wanted to make sure...whew!
