DS's umbilical cord is stinky. There's no sign of redness or swelling around it, it just smells bad. Should I call the doctor? He's 9 days old.

Yeah, it does stink! My MW said to use a little hydrogen peroxide. I only did that a couple times (also used goldenseal powder early on) and it did help with the stink.
