belly button gunk?

About every week or two after his bath I notice my son has this crusty white stuff in his belly button. I clean it out with a q-tip and hydrogen peroxide. What is this stuff, am I doing the right thing by cleaning it? he's 14 months old.

  • It could be a build up of body oils and baby wash, I think you are doing right by cleaning it and I would just ask at his next doctor's appointment.
