Dear customer,

The breast feed infant may tiny tear in the inside skin of the anus called an anal fissure which may cause such symptoms. Sometimes the bleeding is from an irritated intestine (colitis). The colitis can also cause mucous and blood in the stools.The colitis can also be caused by viral and bacterial infections which needs to be treated with suitable drugs.

Let me know if you have any doubt.

Thank you
