The Baby’s Umbilical Cord Is Gone?
Doctor, when I opened my baby’s diapers that were only 7 days without realizing that the umbilical cord had also been pulled out along with the diapers, could that be called puput? nDid the umbilical cord still have blood remaining in the navel? r nThank you
The umbilical cord will dry out and then release, which is a normal process. From the situation that your baby is experiencing, the umbilical cord that dries and loops at 7 days is normal. This is called puput. Puput umbilical cords generally range between 1-2 weeks of age huh. There are no specific side effects because it is a normal thing to happen. Usually the bellied umbilical cord does not bleed, but if there is indeed a little blood, you can clean it with a clean cloth. Avoid using any herbs on your child's belly button.
