stinky

At first I though he was just a farty little boy. Then I realized it wasn't him - it was his cord (blechhh...). But last night it fell off!

So now my little boy is relatively odor-free (he is still his father's son), and he can wear pants :)

Question: Do I still wash his little belly button with alcohol? It's still healing, and I just don't know what to do and feel silly calling the doctor (especially on the weekend) just for this.

It doesn't hurt to wash the belly button a bit longer with alcohol.
In the picture Gerald already looks two months old and he is so cute. Are you calling him Gerald?? The name does fit him.

Yay for a close up pic! So cute!!
I'd totally just switch water now. But that's me!

Alcohol won't hurt, especially if the cord got stinky. Ava's got like that, so I used alcohol once a day until it wasn't red anymore.

Both my girls cords fell off in the hospital, so I didn't experience the "stinky" smell.

That is a great picture of him. He is so wide eyed.

Very cute! Congrats again!

I was told by my DR to wash it with water and a cotton ball after the stub falls off.
