Re: Should I worry? DD (3) sometimes has blood on TP after BM
If your dd was "bleeding just a little bit" from her EYE once a week, do you think you'd be concerned? Bleeding in a 3 yo, during BMs is not normal, and needs to be addressed, either by seeing the MD or trying a few things at home for a bit and then seeing the MD if it doesn't COMPLETELY resolve. Some suggestions:
1. Increase WATER intake.
2. Increase fiber intake (those fiber "cookies" might not be a bad idea, but don't do without increasing water.)
3. Use of probiotics to help normalize bowel flora, which may help transit time, etc. Activia yogurt daily would be OK, but a good multi-strain probiotic taken in addition would be better.
4. Use wet wipes after toileting to decrease irritation.
5. Make sure your dd has a relaxed environment in which to toilet when the urge arises (so she doesn't "hold" it.)
Hope this helps.
