My 10 week old baby girls belly button still weeps a yellow green sticky discharge, there looks like a small redish lump on the inside. The midwife told me to use alcohol wipes, i didn't notice much improvement so i spoke to my GP he advised not to use the wipes and just use warm water still not much improvement.

Its not that bad atm but im worried it might get worse, im a first time mum and just dont know if this is normal, please help.

Thanks Kelly

I agree that 10 weeks is a touch long...you should take her to a pediatrician.If it is leaking yellow/green it could be infected.

There are many things that can cause belly buttons to leak,and most of them require simple treatment,rarely do they require surgery.

I would be concerned at ten weeks. I would talk to a pediatrician (not just a GP).
