Thank you for your question.
I am Dr. Su S. and I will try my best to help you.

Is she 4 months old?

How many times does she pass stool? When did it develop?

Was there blood in the stool or just on wiping?

I just noticed that you have gone offline.

I am writing the answer.

If you have any question after reading this answer, please feel free for follow up query.

If the blood is present on wiping only, then it can come from the anal margin.

It can come from trauma from wiping.

Repeated bowel motion & wiping can make the area sore.

It is not worrying.

However, if there is blood in stool, it can occur from from a bacterial or parasitic infection.

Antibiotic can be required then.

An examination by doctor, stool test would be required.

I hope this information will be helpful.
