Are you giving her any formula? If so she maybe having some infection. Occult blood can be positive even if there is slight blood in stool. Microscopy shows red blood cells. If she has frequent loose stools it is better to show her to a doctor. Please be careful while giving medicines to such small babies. Ascertain the dosage correctly and give using a standard measuring cup.
