To stop this from happening in the first few days after discharge from the hospital need to provide complete care for popochka baby. Usually this newfound mothers are trained in hospitals. Must be purchased in kit: 3% hydrogen peroxide, eye dropper, blunt tip, disinfectant, cotton swabs and sterile wipes.
Upon discharge of the child from the maternity belly button it is usually covered with a crust, from under which periodically may receive the light liquid. Crusts should gradually be removed, as beneath them breed bacteria, which thrive in warm and moist environment.
When processing pupochka need to gently spread the edges of the umbilical wound and drip with a pipette a few drops of 3% hydrogen peroxide. Cotton swab or gauze napkin to blot the foaming liquid not only from the surface bellybutton, but to wet the bottom of the wound, which is very important. Repeat the same thing again 3-4 times.
After each instillation of the navel is thoroughly dried, freeing from the crust. Only it is not necessary to pull with force, otherwise you may open bleeding. Time to clear all the navel from the crusts, but if you do this procedure 2 times a day, 1-2 days, all the scabs will be removed, and two days later the wound is healed and will not require more care.
After washing with peroxide and soaked a cotton swab, be sure to treat the skin around the navel and the navel itself with green paint. Need to handle carefully with your fingers pushing the edge, oiling the bottom and folds of the belly button.
But nevertheless, if the baby's navel became inflamed, and omphalitis could not be avoided, urgently need to show the baby to the pediatrician, and if necessary, and go to the surgical Department for treatment. If not urgently begin treatment, the inflammation will go on and may develop inflammation of the anterior abdominal wall, leading to sepsis.
