My son is 10.5 months old. He started solids from 6 months of age. From 7 months age he had blood in stool. Stool test showed pus cells and no occult blood. He used to get constipated. Then we gave him antibiotics. Again when he became 8 months he had blood in stool. Then again stool test was done and pus cells there and no occult blood. We gave him bacteria as prescribed by the paediatrician and did stool test again in few days. This time pus cells and occult blood was present. After 2 weeks of giving bacteria and junior lanzol tab and Neopeptine drops, stool test showed no issues. Now today again I saw some traces of blood and he has been pooping pellet shaped stools. For around 3 weeks I have been giving him more fruits and once oats or rava. Some days 2 times oats or rava. Could someone help me figure out why he is getting constipated so frequently. He is given water and pees frequently.

Good quantity of water, and fruits (raw). Give probiotics for 15-20 days atleast. Think about some food allergy, if you can point out some food which is consumed in recent past of having such episodes, try stoping that and see. Still constipated, need to have proper history and then accordingly treatment. In case above all trials have been done, please come on personal chat, shall talk about it.
Constipation at this age is not routine. Blood in stool looks most probably due to constipation and not infection per say. Top milk and all refind flour food should be stopped. Fruits like banana or papaya to be given daily. If still hard stool persists then definitely need evaluation for underlying condition and medicine to be given.
