What should my baby's belly button look like when the stump falls completely off? Its red and still kind of bloody...I called the peditrician and they said to just air it out, but everything i have read has said that it shouldnt be bleeding and that its a sign of something more severe... any one have this issue??

I was told to use a q-tip (gently!) one side wet, wipe out belly button, then use dry side to dry it. Few times a day, as well as air ;)

Right! just let it air out. Try to keep it dry. It will heal just fine! I'm a mother of 5
