It's nothing new that dd2 has GI problems and has had chronic diarrhea off and on (mostly on) for the last 16mos accompanied by bouts of GI pain. Last night she was particularly uncomfortable and had a lovely diaper of goo. Literally it was like she pooped mucous that looked to have bright red blood in it but it was a little hard to tell. This morning she just had another small diaper and this time it's gone from a light brown mucous to a clear mucous and is clearly containing bright red blood. Not a huge amount but definitely some blood. With such a little amount of blood and not being sure if this is the first or second diaper containing any I'm a bit hesitant to call the GI just yet. Should I be worried or just watch her? Her temperature is definitely elevated for her but not into even the low grade fever range.

I would call the GI. That said it sounds like an allergy. Has her diet changed at all? Infants with milk allergy often present that way.

Has she been on antibiotics at all? My other thought is cdiff.

Either way blood in stool warrants a call to the GI.

I totally agree with the PP. Possibility of food allergy, and check the GI stuff.

my vote's on returning d-diff. since she's had it for a while now.

Are you supplementing with probiotics?

I'm sure you know about it already but it's made a world of different to some of my students on the autism spectrum (helped them to have solid poop and a lot less stomach pain, which of course translates into happier kids!)
