In brief: Bloody Stool

If this has occurred in 1 or 2 diapers and the baby is feeding well, I would not be concerned.
If the red appearance persists and the baby is fussy, there is a possible milk allergy. If breastfeeding take yourself off of diary for 2-4 months. Generally the baby will out grow this at this age. If this does not work then take the baby into the doctor.
