So yesterday at my son's 2 week appt the DR went ahead and took his umbilical stump off since it hadn't fallen off yet by itself. Has anyone else have this done on their LO's??? I heard 2 weeks is actually early by one of the nurses. So now I am wondering why he did it....I was fine waiting on it. My DD's took exactly 2 weeks.
Anyways, It is really gross looking. Almost gooey/moist. It sticks to his onsie even. I'm sure its not infected, its not red or hot to touch, and it dosen't have an oder. Its just really icky and is bothering me! Any ideas on how to let it heal faster????
