it still has this gooey (sp?) stuff in it. It wasnt ready to fall off but this morning it was hanging and I put pajamas on him and tonight when my bf changed him, the cord was in his pjs. Is that normal? Do I need to call the doctor? My mom said it looks herniated.
Clean and dry, if it starts to bleed I usually put a band aid over it (stick the band aid to a clean towel so its not too sticky, it could irritate his little skin) be careful of tummy time while its still oozy, I would clean around it (DONT TOUCH THE YELLOW PART) with rubbing alcohol and a Q-tip carefully, this will help it to dry out as well...if its sticking out when he cries the band aid will help it to not herniate as well
My daughter's belly button did that and when she went to the doctor's, the doc put stuff on it that would cauterize it. It looked very red for a few days with a grayish crust in spots, but now it is dry and beautiful.
