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.


Pseudo-crunchy mama who is just tryin' to do the right thing for DS (Dec/09) and DD (April/11)
