DH called me in after DD's (23months) bath this evening. She had sat on her towel and when she stood up there was a little blood (a pink smear). I had a look and wiped her with the towel and there was another smear (very light). I couldn't see any source and we looked at the nappy she'd had on before her bath and there was nothing.
I'm a bit concerned Can anyone offer some ideas or insight as to what could be going on??

It could also be a straddle injury?!?!? My DD had some blood there and we freaked out too. She could kinda tell us at the time what she did. We took her straight to hospy and they checked her out. Apparently, straddle injuries are quite common that can/do result in bleeding in girls. More common ones are on see-saws and bikes. Our DD did hers trying to get into the bath tub and slipped footing whilst half way over.
Even with this said, if you have any concerns and your DD is still upset/distressed, I would take a trip to the Dr's/Hospy.

Can't rule out a straddle injury as I don't know her exact movements this arvo while she was babysat. She wasn't distressed at all, even when I looked at the area.

How is she doing today? Did you find out what happened? Is she ok?

My ds1 had blood in his poo last year. It wasn't alot but was noticeable.
He had salmonella poisoning.
Go to the dr and see what they say. Better to be safe than sorry.
Hope all is ok
