Hello ladies, this is my first post here. I just gave birth to my daughter on week ago today. The girl thing is all new to me. All I have are brothers, nephews, boy cousins and my son.<br>
My question is, last night while changing my little girls diaper I noticed a bit of blood mixed in with her discharge. I have since seen it at every other diaper change. Its not a lot of blood and it always mucusy. Does anyone know anything about this? Should I take her to the Pedi? I am trying to avoid the whole Pedi thing at this point since she is so young and I really see no point in a weigh in and a fight over vaxing. I did read an article somewhere that said that a bloody discharge is normal in some female infants due to the hormones she was exposed to in the womb. I don't feel like this is a big thing but I have never heard anything like this before? Any advice I would appreciate. TIA

Can be a totally normal thing in baby girls, due to the hormones from the mom. It shouldn't last more than a few days to a few weeks. If it does, it's probably something that bears having checked out. It is also very normal for baby girls to develop breasts; again, this is due to mom's hormones, and it doesn't last long.

the 'mini-period' lasted about three weeks with my dd.<br><br>
it's perfectly normal after stewing in your hormones for nearly 10 months!
