Should i worry I don't know i am trying to call the doctors but they are on lunch. She had few bites of banana and she threw up and i saw a spot of blood in it. I checked her teeth to see if she was bleeding thru the teeth but no she is fine and playing but I am worried about what to do. She is 2 yrs old. It must be less than a drop of blood. Please anyone advice.

i´ve heard that if the blood is really red it is no danger - if it is dark then it´s coming from further down and then u shuld be alerted. but try to call the doctor anyways!

i wouldnt take any chances. i would take her to the emergency room right away to make sure its nothing serious. you dont want to risk it..and you dont want to wait til its too late. it is not normal to throw up blood.
