THIS IS AN UMBILICAL GRANULOMA
The umbilical cord is clamped and cut after birth. On the navel, a little cord stump is left, which usually falls off within 1 to 2 weeks.
During the healing phase, about 1 in 500 newborns will suffer an overgrowth of scar tissue. It usually appears as a pink, wet mass of tissue. It will not cause any discomfort or injury to your child.
If you discover a granuloma, notify your healthcare professional. They can be treated in a number of ways that are both simple and effective. What appears to be a granuloma isn’t always one… As a result, it’s important to consult your doctor.
Did your baby have an umbilical granuloma? None of my kids did.
