Here are warning signs, courtesy of the University of Virginia Health System, that should prompt you to contact your doctor:

  • The end of the umbilical cord (near the skin) is bleeding.
  • What’s left of the cord is discharging yellow or white pus.
  • Swelling or redness is surrounding the belly button.
