Anal fissures are: A possible cause, but only his pediatrician can tell you if it is from a more serious cause after examining him.

Blood in stool: If your baby has not been checked by your pediatrician, please do so asap. If formula-fed, the most common cause is cow's milk allergy (regular formulas are cow-milk-based). Another cause could be bacterial infection. Some constipated babies can develop anal fissures.
