  • it just means that the new lil scab got washed off and its fine hon. Let the cord site dry up and heal a lil more before doing another bath in a tub. :o)

  • That happened to my son too! Its ok as long as its not gushing blood. It should re-heal & be fine in a few days. I agree with Bearsjen, wait until its completely healed before you give him another bath in the tub.
