Looks like blood from her girly parts!! help! UPDATE

I'm not sure that I'm posting in the right spot....don't know where else to put this though. My daycare provider just called saying that it looked like blood in her diaper where her girly parts are. I told her to send me a pic and sure enough it's a redish color. What would cause this? Is it normal? I've never had a girl before. I'm on hold right now waiting for her pediatrician...thought I'd post while I wait.

Well it's not a UTI. I wish it was...at least there would be an explanation. The doctor said all we can do is keep an eye on her and if it happens again they may have to send her somewhere to do an internal exam which would require anesthesia. This happened when she was a couple days old. A little bloody discharge and I was freakin out of course!! My midwife said discharge is normal for infant girls. Bloody discharge was not as common as regular discharge (I hate that word btw...lol) but she wasn't concerned at the time. I wonder if there's a connection.....

Wonder if it could be something like a UTI? I'd be really nervous about it, but I'm sure there's a not-so-scary explanation.

UTI's can cause blood in the urine, I'd get it checked out.

That's what the nurse thinks it is. I'm making an appointment now.

Yep could be a UTI. DSS had one pretty young. I also have had one that caused some bleeding.

I've only had one and that was a while ago. No bleeding w/ it but it was super uncomfortable. Will antibiotics clear her up if that's what it is? What causes UTI's? #2 getting in her girly parts? I always make sure she's very clean after diaper changes.

I've had a number of UTIs and antibiotics do a great job of clearing up the infection. As for what causes them, #2 getting in her girly parts is one possibility. This can be confirmed by sending a urine sample out for testing, but that's easier said than done with a baby. They may just treat it without testing to see what kind of bacteria it is. Hopefully it's a one time occurrence and you won't have to worry about it again!
