hi, my son 2 years old was sleeping after had 8oz of formula milk. after 2 hour without coughing or crying, I notice there was a blood spot (50 cent size) on the bed sheet. then I found that all over his lips had blood. I suspect my son might have spilled out some blood while sleeping. I don’t know why it happened and this was the first time it happened. the colour of the blood are mix of fresh blood and brownish a little.
