Re: umbilical cord???

as long as its stopping it should be fine... I mean if it was bleeding a lot & you couldnt get it to stop then Id worry. Im pretty sure itll be fine

Re: umbilical cord???

dd lost most of hers when she was a couple weeks old and it snagged on my bra. it bled a little bit (like there were a few smears of blood). there was also like a tiny bit left and i think after a couple days they told me to use a little hydrogen peroxide on a q-tip to get the last bits of gunkiness out. probably want to check with her ped on that though.
