Freaking out a bit as i just changed dd and noticed blood in her poo for the 2nd time today.
She is poo-ing normally (for her) - usually does 2-3 poos a day, has wet nappies and eating and drinking normally. Havent changed her diet (although could crayons be the culprit?) She doesnt seem unwell.
In the second nappy it was mucousy and darker - that's what's worrying me.
Trip to GP or .....??? what should i b doing in the meantime while i wait for an appt tomorrow?!
yer, a bit worried here. But dd is being her fine happy self atm.

Is it in the poo or on the poo? Either way as it's the new get her checked out. my ds will get blood on stools due to constipation causing an anal fissure. In his case its on the poo. Definitely get it checked as it could be something more serious.

Is the blood dark or bright?
Either way I'd ring the health direct line as suggested by others - they can let you know if it's a serious go to hosp now or a wait and see GP at earliest time
DS1 had a HEAP of bright red blood in loo once - freaked me out!! Turns out it was an anal fissure but I any blood sends parents into freak out mode!
Look at positives everything else about her is normal behaviour - if it was life threatening she would have other symptoms!
Good luck x
