Constipation in 11 month old is unfortunate. May I please request you to see a paediatrician to discuss your baby's diet. Blood in poo during constipation could be because of straining at stools, but at 11 months, it should be rare. If the problem persists, please see a surgeon. I would like him to rule out the possibility of intestinal polyps.
