I have a two and a half week old newborn, and her stump fell off Thursday night- it got wet with urine twice because we were using Tushies and it soaked her entire diaper: Anyway, since then it seems like after I clean the inside of her bellybutton a tiny bit of blood crusts in it. When I wipe it away again I notice the dried blood again a few hours later. Is this cause for concern? It is not active bleeding, meaning that I don't actually see any blood drip out. I'm a little freaked b/c I didn't get the Vitamin K, and I know that bleeding from the stump can be a sign of HDN. Am I being paranoid?
