Bleeding belly button?
 
DD is just over two weeks old and her stump fell off at 5 days. Ever since, it's bled, just a bit. I don't ever see the blood, but I find it on her diapers (just a bit). So I'm wiping her belly to keep it clean, but just with a cloth with water.

The midwife said (at her 1 week appt) that it was ok as long as it didn't start to swell and 'spread'. We don't go back until next week.

Advice?

TIA!

my dds fell off today at just 6 days, but yeah they gross me out too and I can barely look at it, but idk, bleeding for that long may be of concern, hope you get it figured out.

My son's fell off at 7 days and Oh my goodness was it STINKY!! We were taught in nursing school that stinky means infection and bad, but his doctor said not to worry about it. He had a little light bleeding for like 2 weeks which I only know about because of the random dried blood. I just cleaned it with a little rubbing alcohol. I was all concerned but it healed up fine.

Elizabeth lost hers at a week old, and at her 2 week check up it was still having a little blood from it, Dr said it's nothing to worry about (unless it's infected) .....said that sometimes when they loose it so early it can do that:headscratch:

it stopped soon after that...and she had a cute normal non bleeding belly botton now:thumbsup:

My daughters bled for a week afterwards because hers fell off prematurely. Our ped told me not to be concerned as long as it was just a spot or two and to make sure to keep things from rubbing on her belly button.

Wow it sounds like all of theirs fell off in the first week and then had the bleeding. DDs didn't fall off till at after 2 weeks I think it was around day 15 or 16 and she has not had any bleeding. I hope they will stop bleeding soon!
