I am waiting on his pediatrician to call me back, but I'm really nervous right now. My son is 7wks old today! He was fussy and fighting his sleep for about 1-2 hrs while spitting up. He just spit up and along w/the spit up was brown mucus or something of the sort along with red blood! This came out of his mouth. He has been a little fussy the pass few days, he normally is a very smiley, happy, and "talkative" newborn. He has also been drooling the pass few days. Yesterday I changed a poopy diaper in the late morning and then he didn't have another poopy diaper until today's late morning. I know it's normal for newborns to not poop for up to 2 days, not too worried about that. Not sure if any of you mothers have experienced any of this?!?! I'm mainly concerned about the bloody mucus. The drooling and fussiness sounds like teething to me, he has been chewing on his finger the pass few days as well. Can babies teeth at 7 wks old? I was born with teeth, I guess they are called sugar teeth....
