The baby's stump fell off at 6 days, but I think it may have been ripped off by a blanket. Her belly button is still really crusty and stinky, and sometimes bleeds brown blood. It's gooey, but I don't think it's infected, b/c it's not puss and it doesn't hurt her when I clean it. I have been using witch hazel to clean it out on occasion, but it's still smelly and gross. Is this normal? It didn't happen with DD#1's.
Mom to DD#1 8/04, nursed 43 months, DD#2 8/06, nursed 21 months and DD#3 9/08, still nursing strong
