Ok. I feel like a first time Mom again LOL. My 3rd lost his umbilical stump a few days ago, no big deal. At the time we noticed a little bit of blood again didn't seem like a big deal.
Here it is a few days later and he continues to have blood on his little belly button. It doesn't seem to be actively bleeding it's certainly not a LOT, but there is definitely a fair amount of dried blood around his belly button and I cannot for the life of me remember if the other two kept bleeding like this after they lost their umbilical stump. It's naturally leaving small spots on his clothes and diapers, I can't decide whether to start allowing his diaper to cover it, or just keep it below, I've been keeping it below so it hopefully won't irritate that little belly button.
Ack.. I feel like a first time Mom with this question, but I can't find online answers, Will call Dr on Mon just doesn't seem like an emergency.

my girls are 5 weeks old. their cords fell off a few days before there 2 week check up and it was bleeding a lot and when we went to there check up the dr put silver nitrate on it and sealed it up. she said it was not a big deal but the meds would just help it heal up a little faster.
