I have a 6y rold , active/outdoors boy, his bellybutton is a kinda deep innie with folds inside, i use babyoil and a qtip to clean his one a week, but sometimes the qtip smells , and ocassionally there is caked dirt in it, has anyone ever had this problem and can you send pics and comments , thanks XD

How do yu clean it ? How often ? How deep is your child's own? How old is your child ?

Because his bellybutton is sensitive and sometimes its gets red, plus he puts sand and other stuff which will contribute to the dirt in it too

Most children find their bellybutton fascinating. What's wrong with him playing with it?

Thanks Michelle, but he also has a habbit of playing with it, he would stick his finger so far down in it, i am afraid that if i show him how to clean it himself, he would just play with it more. Also yesterday, i also found sand grains in it.


How do your children clean theirs?

Maybe clean it more often, like everyday. Everytime he has a bath/shower he should be cleaning himself.
