You should not be worried ..passing one bowel movement with blood is not a cause of concern..she might have been constipated and blood is normal ..
If this happens many times you can seek medical consultation with a pediatrician.

If she had constipation and stool was rock hard , there is possibility that she injured her rectum
Also some foods and medication gives blood apearance, like for example too much tomatoes can cause exactly what you described

If non of the above then i recommend seeing your pediatric doctor

Good luck

Hi,
black coloured stools often occur due to small intestine infections.
if the blood was bright red colored,then it may be rectal blood due to constipation.
give him plenty of water.
one episode of blood should not be a worry.
consult a pediatrician.
thanks

HI
THIS MAY HAVE BEEN DUE TO WORM INFESTATION.
GIVE DEWORMING AGENTS.
GET STOOL EXAMINATION DONE TO SEE FOR ANY PARASITES.

hello there
such bouts of blood through stools occur due to rectal causes. may be constipation earlier may have triggered the cause.
give laxatives for smooth stools.
