my daughter lost her cord stump last wednesday, and last night and today her belly button has been bleeding--not a lot, but enough to crust over. I clean it after each diaper change, but each time it needs it. Is this normal, or could it be infected??

it's normal...my son didn't have that problem but they say that if a little blood comes out then it's normal as long as it doesn't occur too far after it's fallen off (i think 2 weeks) and it sounds like it's just a slight amount for you...if an infection was present, it would be really foul smelling. just keep the area really dry...and call your pediatrician if you are worried about it.

My daugfhter had that problem too..just keep it clean with warm water and q-tips, and don't give her a full bath til the bleeding stops.

my son had that problem and it came and went for about a week or so.

Thanks, everyone, that makes me feel better about it! Merry Christmas!
