  • Our ped told us that if it's still kinda oozy that you should clean it with alcohol until it dries up. Hers bled for about 3 days after it fell off but the alcohol dried it all up.
  • My last daughter's uc fell off after one week. I think bc the hospital forgot to take off the clamp. My Ped had to do it. So I think that it weighed it down. But it oozed a couple days very lightly. After it dried up we were able to start baths.

  • I was told even after it falls off to wait until the area has dried before cleaning/washing.
