Q:

hi all,my baby s 2 months old.There s some  pus forming in her umblical cord today i saw some blood strains. Is dis normal?im giving both bf nd fm



Sheetal Rai

pls get it checked with ur doctor. ur baby is too small to take any risks. try cleaning the navel area with spirit twice a day. and the umbilical cord contains a little blood when that dries up that's when it falls off. she it might be that blood. but still get it checked.

consult your pead .. it happens with my baby also Dr prescribed me an antiseptic powder it helped. .I would suggest you to keep baby naval area dry until everything gets fine. give baby sponge bath.

Consult your paediatric expert. Don't do anything on your own. Keep that area clean n dry. After bath.. immediately pat dry. Don't pull or press that region. My doctor gave me "neosporin powder" to dust there. check with your doctor.
Dr.Shilpitha Shanthappa your suggestions please

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Yes deepu... as Roopashree said just pat dry the area and dust some neosporin powder... do this three times a day... and baby myt be having pain inside as infection is there.. hence get a checkup done... try to maintain hygiene while touching baby washing baby wears n cosmetics...
