My ds is only 3 days old and the last 2 diaper changes there have been a drop of blood in the diaper. Could he have a UTI already? Is there something else that could be causing this? This is my 1st experience with no-circing, and I want to be prepared to what the dr. might say at our appointment tomorrow morning. He is nursing well, plenty of wet and soiled diapers and we use cloth washed in Country Save detergent, no other signs of rash on his bottom.
Actually, blood in the urine is always abnormal. However, infant s urine may normally contain significant amounts of uric acid. These crystals get trapped in the diaper liner and appear like red brick dust. If the "blood" in the urine has this appearance, it is probably not really blood but uric acid crystals.
