Welcome to Just Answer:

It is likely that the blood spot occur as a result of unintentional eye rubbing causing a conjunctival blood vessel rupture. This is not harmful. It will resolve within 1-2 week, and faster with regular use of preservative free tear drop such as Refresh or Genteal tear drop 3-4 times daily for 1 week. If it fails to resolve or worsen, I suggest that you take the baby to the eye doctor for closer evaluation.
