Belly button after stump

What does the belly button look like after stump falls off? Cometly closed ip or still healing/ dried out? My LOs fell off last night and it still looks open and has that puss look inside. Seems like it fell off too early.

  • DD's was full of puss and gross after. Apparently, her umbilical cord was regrowing and she had to have a procedure done in the doc's office to stop it from regrowing. However, he said this is rare, so yours is probably okay.

  • Ours was a bit goopy for a few days. Just keep it clean and dry. We even used a hairdryer to keep it dry.

  • DS's was also goopy and there was slight discharge for a couple of weeks or so.

  • After his stump fell off there was still a little bit left stuck in his belly button but the pedi squeezed it out(so gross) and it was fine after that. No puss or anything.

  • I was surprised - hers was a little pink for a couple of days, and then it healed up beautifully. She never had any puss or goopyness (new word??) or anything.
