Re: Bleeding belly button in 2-week-old
Thanks! Ironically, the pediatrician called me this morning after my post to follow up on DS's bad diaper rash (it finally cleared up after the last prescription ointment), so I asked him as well. He said it's normal and that I should watch for oozing or signs of infection, which I haven't seen or I would have taken him in. He also said to check it again tomorrow morning and if it's still bleeding, I can bring him in and they'll cauterize (sp?) it to make it heal faster. I don't remember my girls' bleeding afterwards.
