Umbilical cord care
Clamp the umbilical cord After clamping, wait 2-3 days and then release the clamp.
Two arteries and one venous vein are visible from the dried umbilical cord.
A well-dried umbilical cord
Normal belly button
As soon as the baby is born, tying the umbilical cord 1 to 2 cm away from the navel with sterile thread, or tighten the umbilical cord clamp in one place.
Cut the umbilical cord area 5mm away from the umbilical cord area toward the placenta with sterilized scissors.
The umbilical cord attached to the navel is naturally dry and falls from the navel around 1-2 weeks of age. Be careful not to get water on the umbilical cord until the umbilical cord attached to the belly button dries out.
Be careful not to get water on the umbilical cord and navel so that the belly button with the umbilical cord does not become festered.
For this reason, it is not recommended to bathe your baby in a tub until the umbilical cord has fallen. Before the umbilical cord falls, sanitize the navel and umbilical cord daily with rubbing alcohol. Sometimes, they are naturally killed without such treatment. When the umbilical cord dries, the umbilical cord becomes wrinkled.
You can also disinfect your belly button by flipping the dry umbilical cord from one side to another and dropping a few drops of rubbing alcohol onto your belly button and umbilical cord. Some doctors disinfect the umbilical cord and navel with triple die instead of rubbing alcohol.
Triple Die is a potion similar to blue ink. In the neonatal room, the umbilical cord and navel are sterilized with a triple die, and after that, a few drops of rubbing alcohol are added to the umbilical cord and navel to disinfect the umbilical cord every day.
Sometimes the umbilical cord is sterilized with a betadine disinfectant solution. It doesn’t hurt when you apply alcohol to your belly button.
If the umbilical cord or belly button smells nasty, bleeds little by little, pus, swelling, or granuloma, you should contact your doctor right away. Copyright ⓒ 2014 John Sangwon Lee, MD., FAAP
