  • what do you mean? you can keep it or throw it away, it's up to you. You don't have to do anything special to the belly button though, you can just start giving the baby regular baths though.

  • DO NOT PUT ANYTHING ON IT!!! im a new mom and had that question to, they use to put rubbing alcol on it but my doc said only do it if the peditrion thinks its infected. it will go back to a reg belly button within 2-3weeks promise!
