    Yeah I think so cause its rotting flesh really. Yuck. I hated the cord. My aunty found it in a nappy at 7 days and id never been so thankful. If the mw said it was ok just keep your eye on it and if its really stinky, bloody, weepy etc then perhaps take harry to the gp tomorrow. Im pretty sure its normal though. Congratulations!! Xx

    My lo had a smelly cord towards the end.. I was told it was a sign of infection but if it looks fine of say it is. I didn't know this but make sure it's not covered over by the nappy as it needs to dry out :) congratulations on your lo xx

    Most likely hun. Though I couldnt say cause I avoided it haha. I don't know why, but they creep me out. If the belly button is ok id say he will be fine. Makes me feel a bit sick that some people keep the clip!!!!! Yuck! But each to their own!
