My baby will be six weeks old tomorrow and she hada little belly button that looked cute but something seemed not right. Mw said was fine and dr said was fine.... but it had a dried snot-like crust around it every once in a while.

I put with hazel on it and then colloidal silver gel a few times bc it was looking red and it seemed to heal... them last night I saw this. ...

After reading some in the forums I tried salt bc it looked like agranuloma and this is the result after washing out the salt

Does that look right? We are down to one vehicle and have no insurance so going to the dr for a non emergency is not an option. I just don't know if it is an emergency... mw comes for last postnatal tonight.

I don't think it's an emergency.  Just ask your MW when you see her tonight. 

Beautiful baby girl born 8/13/2012. Little star baby lost at 10 weeks pregnant, 12/18/2013. Currently due 12/13/2014 with a rainbow.
