Thank you for your query.

I suggest that you first get the stool examined to know if the streak is really blood. You will need to get a stool routine and occult blood test done. If it is blood then the source needs to be found out. As your child is on breast feeding it cannot be food intolerance.

I hope I have responded to your query to your satisfaction.

Wishing your daughter all the best.
