In brief: Too:big/fast/hard
If a kid is passing stool & it comes out too big, too fast or too hard it can trigger a crack in the skin that bleeds.
It would be bright red & on the outside of the poop.If it is mixed well within a stool, it may be a sign of a blood producing pathogen like salmonella or shigella.
