    we are finding bites on our 14month daughter.
    weird part is that the whole time (last 1 month) i have only been able to find a couple of bugs anywhere in her room and still not sure if this is bed bugs or something else.
    1. first type.. very small, half size of a pin head found under the mattress in her crib. When i squished it, it popped with a dark red stain (looked like blood)

    Look like mites. Need a more close-up, focused picture of the plump ones.
