    my baby is 6 months old and this morning when we changed her diaper there was light blood coming from her lady area... checked 2 more times it was still there-its gone now. has anyone had this happen and if so what was it? i have heard of new babies having this but not her age? thanks in advance!

    I know this sounds patronising but its not honest. are you sure its from there and not bottom?

    I'd also heard of that in new babies but not so sure once they're older. I would give NHS Direct a call just to be on the safe side. Then again they're on my speed dial, they probably know me by name by now! :blush:

    I got told this as well as LO had a tiny bleed when she was newborn. Never knew it happened! :wacko: Something to do with the hormones that have been passed from mum to baby.

    I'd give HV a call and check. Chances are all is okay, but better to reassure you x

    they are treating it as a UTI and have her on atibiotics now because she is still spotting so we had to take her to the doctor again
