I was dabbing around it with alcohol and a q-tip and I think it would come off if encouraged it a bit more, but underneath the stump her belly button still looks fresh and unhealed. What should I do? It's too late to call the ped today, but we have our first appt Wednesday morning.
Have any goldenseal? That's what I use in babies cord instead of alcohol, it dries it up nice and prevents infection.
