My lo's cord fell off a few days ago and every time I change her diaper there is new dried blood on it. I know some blood is normal but how long does it happen for?

Can't remember with my other 2 kids because it's been so long.

My lo is 2 weeks, so I think it fell off when she was around 11 days.

I cleaned it up for about the 4th time now. It looks really good once it's clean of all the blood. It's sticking out just a little, but I heard that's also normal and will go away after a couple weeks.

Usually just a few day unless the cord fell off too early, then it will take longer.
Unless there's signs of something being wrong I wouldn't worry about it.

I agree with the others, it sounds normal
