How to care for the navel of the babies

After cutting the umbilical cord is a rest of about three centimeters, once dry, will fall. To make the wound heal properly, every time the baby is wet or you change the diaper, and at least once a day, we have to clean up the stump with a gauze soaked in alcohol at 70 degrees (sold in pharmacies as well) and allow to dry.

Needless wrapped in gauze and put ombliguero. Nor should apply creams or powders, and try to put the diaper below the wound so that it does not rub the umbilical area. If there is no infection (the skin is not red or pus, and there is no fever), you should not worry that the injury late in the disappearance.
