Pediatrician, Surgery 's  Response
Thank you for your query
Seems more like it is due to the juice. It is unlikely for your child to suddenly start having blood in stools. But if you still want to confirm you can do two things. Consults your pediatric surgeon. And second get a stool examination done. IN any case i don't think its a cause of concern and i suggest you wait for it to subside.
Hope that helps
God bless you
