Hi.....my daughter is 5 months old and has been exclusively breastfed. Around 2.5 months was the first time we saw a few specs of blood in her diaper and when she got her first cold (2 months) was when I noticed the mucus. The blood is there from time to time...sometimes a full two weeks and then not for a week, sometimes every 2nd day. I gave up dairy for two weeks with no change. We have sent away some fecal samples to see if they show anything. Anyone else with blood or mucus and have any ideas? We think the blood 'may' be from an anal fissure.....not sure about the mucus though.
