My daughter is 8 days old. Her stump fell off at 4 days old. And now its cracked and bleeding and has lots of dark crusties. Idk if it should look like this or what to do. Im about to switch her dr cuz her dr right now is an idiot and too far away.

I would continue to clean with the rubbing alcohol and call your pedi and see what they want you to do. good luck!

That is a bit early to fall off. I like to use goldenseal (you buy it in capsule form at the grocery store, just open up the capsule and dust some on). It keeps it clean and dry.
