    Just wondering what your babys belly button looks like!! lol i know it sounds strange but jamie is nearly 3 months old now and his belly button is still slightly gooey/mucky and rubs off onto his vest!
    Ive showed the health visitor a few times and she said it looks fine , healed well and looks clean???? hmmm well it doesnt look clean to me!!
    Its not leaking all that bad but i would have thought that after nearly 3 months it would have been totally clean and healed by now??

    Ava's is completely healed and clean and has been since the stump fell off when she was 3 weeks old. Hmmmm.... :?

    Can you get a second opinion because that doesn't sound right. I just googled it, does this sound like what's happening?

    Hiya Steph

    Erin is 5 weeks now and her belly button had been clean and goo free for a couple of weeks now so I agree with Amber I think you should get it checked.
