Definitely take your child to the doctor. Colitis is a sign of this condition, but they'd be to young at this age to have this, but it's possible their is something wrong with their bowel, kidney or diet.

Bring your infant to the pediatrician immediately. Bloody bowel movements with mucus is always something serious. It is possible that s/he may have a food allergy, such as soy or dairy, a bacterial infection, such as Salmonella, intussusception, or other intestinal disorders.

You should definitely sit in front of your computer and type to more strangers about it. You certainly wouldn't want to inconvenience, let's see... your doctor with any questions regarding your child's health and well being, would you!? Shameful show of poor judgement... seriously.

You should take the infant to their Pediatrician. Blood in anyone's stool young or old is always a warning sign, and needs to be looked at as soon as possible.
