Is it normal to find a small amount of blood in my baby's diaper?

In brief: No

While babies may have a small amount of blood in their diapers because of passing a hard poop (constipation), you should consult your doctor. Any large amounts of blood and your child should be seen in ER or immediately at your doctor's office.

In brief: No

A baby boy should not have just blood on his diaper (other than blood stains from a circumcision for 1-2 days afterwards).
If spots on his diaper look like blood, the parent can take the baby and the diaper to his pediatrician to see if the spots are indeed blood, and to look for the source of the blood.
