Age, feeding method?: How old is the infant? How is child being fed? Is the baby in distress? Vomiting? Blood could be normal or a problem. Check with pediatrician.

Newborns: Hi, rectal bleeding should always be evaluated. Sometimes it is related to hard stools, anal irritation, diaper rash, irritation from baby wipes, fissures, and many other causes. You should call your pediatrician or have the baby evaluated by a medical provider. Good luck!

Visit your Peds doc: If the baby is clinically well, it can be nothing. Sometimes infants have a hard stool which can cause a small anal fissura. Parents can inflict a small rectal vessels damage by improper measurement of the rectal temp . Or it can be a cause of the protein cow's milk intolerance if your infant is fed by a formula. If the baby is not well, visit you pediatrician immediately.
