Infant has mild diarrhea, eats, drinks a lot and drinks a lot, had fever, pooped, blood in fecal waste. Worried?


My son has had mild diarrhea for a week now. We were not worried because he still eats a lot and drinks a lot. He is 1 yr 18 mos old. He breastfeeds normal and still eats normal. He had fever 3 times now but they would subside within the day. I have yet to take him to the doctor. But now I am worried bec he just pooped and we found blood in his fecal waste. Please advise. Thanks!
