My midwife warned me that it would get smelly, but its been a week now and its dry and black but stinks so badly that you can smell it when you walk into the house! Should it really be that over-powering? I kept thinking his nappy needs changing but its so fetid that I cant mistake it anymore. Tell me yours is like this too? It doesnt look infected at all, quite clean, though it still has the peg on the end, is that normal to leave it there? Sorry if all this is obvious but I dont have a clue!
