My son is just about 3 months old now- and his belly button isn't fully closed, there's no gunk or goop but there was times where he'd extend and a small seam seemed to open .. I did some reading and I started using a alcohol swab cleaned the area gently and placed a loose bandaid, am I doing the right thing?

We have a doctors appointment the 19th- and I'm going to re- address it. The first time I mentioned it, and the pediatrician told me that there was still tissue that should go away eventually.. still it was early and I figured give it more time to go away. But it just seems like its going on longer than I'd like.. My 1st born- my daughter her stump fell off at 3-4weeks and healed almost instantly ..

From reading what you wrote it sounds like you are doing a great job of taking care of this issue. However have you talked to his doctor to see if they recommend anything different?
