My newborn is only 10 days old and her umbilical cord fell off like 3 maybe 4 days ago and her belly button is bleeding. Is this normal or should I be concerned?

Hi,

Some light bleeding is normal but it should stop fairly quickly.

If it continues to bleed or seems to be bleeding heavily then seek medical attention.

Hallo,
How much blood is there? If the bleeding is light this is normal but if the bleeding is severe you should see the doctor because baby can lose too much blood. The light bleeding is often when the cord fells of and this is nothing to be worried about. But you have to know that dripping blood is very dangerous. You should try to stop it by applying gauze on it. Talk to your doctor also and see if he has some better solution. If the bleeding stops after 15 minutes your baby should be fine, but if it continues to go after this the baby is in danger.

All the best to you,
Karen
