My baby is 2 weeks old and his umbilical cord hasn't fallen off yet but i have a question I was told not to clean it and to leave it alone by the doctor I noticed that it looks like Its peeling by the belly button and dry blood is that normal ? My dd is 4yrs old and believe It or not I dont remember how It was when she was a new born. Any answers or websites help thanks
Every baby is different and every doctor has a different suggestion for care. Go with what you've been told and just wait it out. If it smells, swells, or oozes, you need to get it checked. Otherwise, everything is ok.
