I don't know if I'm posting my ? in the right spot or not. anyways, my 2 week old dd's umbilical stump fell off at about 1 week. It seemed infected so I have taken her in twice now for them to put silver nitrate on it (i think that's what they do). anyways, it seems to be alot better, but still bleeding a bit around the edges. Do i need to take her back in a third time or is there something I can do at home to help it heal??
