Blood in my 2 year old's POOP

My 2 and a half just pooped and it was hard and with a little blood and mucus, i am worry because it's the first time this happens, I don't know if it's because she pushed to hard or something is wrong ?

Hi there.  They often say that if it is bright red, it's from straining and if it is black, it's more of a problem.  

If it was just that once, I'd just work on her diet to allow her to be less consitipated.  Hard stools hurt!  I'd increase her fruit intake, fiber and give her a bit of grape juice daily.  Baby food prunes taste good and you can call it 'purple pudding'.  These things help keep stools softer.  good luck
