How to handle the navel of a newborn, kids

Looking at my son’s tummy, I sometimes involuntarily remember that for nine whole months the umbilical cord was the most important link between us. Through her, the baby received everything he needed, being inside me. And when he was born, and the umbilical cord was cut, only the navel was left, for which I had been caring for several weeks responsibly and carefully.

As soon as the son was born, the obstetrician gently clamped the umbilical cord with forceps, cut it and put a special clamp (I called it a clothespin). After these procedures, the son looked the following way: a small tail of the umbilical cord or the so-called umbilical cord, 2-3 cm long with a white pin, protruded from the navel.

Starting from the next day, the neonatologist began to closely monitor the navel of the child. Every day during the detour she checked whether everything was in order. Is there any redness, inflammation, or any discharge? At the same time she told us (mothers) how to process the navel at home after the rest of the umbilical cord dries and disappears.

According to the doctor, the tail should disappear within 3-10 days. He disappeared from his son on the fourth day, a few hours before discharge. To be more precise, the nurse who took the blood from the child helped him fall away. Having said that the tail had already dried up enough, she twirled the clothespin slightly and he pulled away.

At home, from the very first evening, daily navel treatments began. This was necessary to avoid wound infection. I spent them once a day immediately after swimming. I note that until the navel, the son was completely healed, I bathed only in boiled water.

For the treatment of the navel, I used the following:

– hydrogen peroxide;
– brilliant green (brilliant green solution);
– cotton buds.

After bathing, I wet my son’s tummy with a towel. And after that she transferred to the navel.

First of all, hydrogen peroxide dripped onto the navel (for convenience, I bought a bottle with a convenient dispensing neck). The peroxide immediately began to foam, and softened crusts moved away from the navel, which I cleaned with cotton buds. Some crusts were in the folds, so they had to be very carefully removed. I repeated these actions 2-3 times.

After that, it was time to process the green paint. It was necessary to disinfect the wound. At the same time it was also convenient to use a cotton swab. It should be good to lubricate with green paint only the area of ​​the navel itself, without affecting the skin around it. What I did.

Two weeks later, the navel is fully healed. Peroxide on it no longer foamed, and no trace of the wound could be seen.

To process the navel of a newborn is quite simple. You just need to stock up with everything you need, as well as a little patience, and in a couple of weeks the baby’s navel will become very pretty.

And how did you process your navel to your children?
