Hi ladies. My baby is 5 weeks old. His umbilical stump fell off at 10 days. His belly button has a little section that sticks out. It's wet and gooey, for lack of better term. He doesn't seem to mind and it doesn't seem to be causing him pain. I just can't figure out what this is. It doesn't seem infected and it's not red. We have a routine doctors appt this week so I will ask then, but I just wanted to know what you thought. I was thinking maybe it was an umbilical hernia, but all the pictures of those don't look like his belly button. His isn't a big lump, but a small 'wet' amount of skin bulging out.
