It's a bug from the bedroom - but is it a bedbug?

Hi there,

 

Can you identify this bug for us? (see attached pictures - the bug is on a mm scale in the first picture).

 

I found attached to my daughter this morning. It's 2mm long, with a black, flattened oviod, unsegmented body. It must have managed to attach itself quite quickly as this happened whilst she was getting dressed / running around the bedroom with no trousers on, rather than when she was asleep. I had to give it quite a tug to get it off her and it left a big (considering the bug's size) bite. We have found similar bugs in our bedroom and have had similar bites, although we hadn't associated the two before.

 

Thanks for your help!
