In brief: Possible allergy

There are several possible answers but today in my experience the most common reason in the first six months is an entity called food protein-induced proctitis/colitis.
It is often caused by milk or soy in both breast and formula fed infants. Constipation and certain infections are other but less common reason in this early age group.
