Thanks for posting your query.

If it is just a tinge of blood present in the urine, then it is fine. Even if it is a few drops of fresh blood, it is still fine.

Please let me know if the bleeding is gross or if the amount of blood is more in the urine. Also, let me know if it is happening recurrently or if it was just a one-time episode.

In my opinion, I do not think there is anything wrong with the baby. It is just a variant of the normal and can be safely neglected.

Awaiting your response.
