What you are seeing are segments of Tape Worms they are a result of your baby ingesting a Flea that contained the Tape worm eggs. All it takes is one Flea, It sounds like these segments are alive from your description. The only treatment for this is called Droncit or generic Prazquantel. This medication will have to be given to get rid of the Tape worms.You will need to alert the Vet that you believe that your baby needs to be treated for tape worms. They can run a stool sample and give the proper medication. I am going to give you a link to read about Tape worms and the life cycle. I hope this information helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Joan
