My DS and I were talking this morning, it had suddenly occured to me anything you put on a newborn's cord stump is practically mainlined to the body. He told me isopropal (rubbing) alcohol is toxic because the bonds are easily broken down, therefore making the liver work hard and in huge amounts shutting it down. Then we realized that would tie the liver up and keeps it from dealing with other things: free radicals (bilirubin). My question to you is this: did you apply alcohol to your baby's cord stump to clean it like the doctors say to, and did your child get jaudiced? I want to see if there's a connection here.
