Cord Question

RJS MOM - July 5

My son is a month old and last week his cord came off, but i just noticed yesterday that there was yellowish crusty stuff all around it & there is like a little bubble in there too. I dont know if that is part of his bellty button or apart of his umbilical cord. Is that normal??? Its 4th of July weekend, so should i call his dr?

Hi RJS if it looks angry and red and he is running a fever call your doc but if it looks like it is left from where it fell off it will clear up in a few days. Take a dry Qtip and gently swab it, if it smells like an infection for sure call!!! Hope this helps. Good luck!

I agree, but if you are worried in the least take him to see the pediatrician on monday.
