Question : True or False – it’s normal to see a bit of blood near the umbilical cord stump ??
Answer : Most non-parents know that a newborn baby is born with an umbilical cord attached to him but are blissfully unaware that once the cord is cut off the baby is left with an umbilical cord stump which has to be taken care of by the new parents. To new parents, this may seem incredibly daunting at first but a little bit of research will convince them that it is no big deal. But do you know if it is common to see a little bit of blood near the umbilical cord stump?
