Answer: It may take around 6 weeks or more to dry n fall naturally. Yes u can bathe him. Drop a few drops of mustard oil there while massaging. Just dont touch navel area, just pour water while bathing no soap etc. Afterwards pat dry with a clean towel snd put few drops of betadine solution with clean hands n clean cotton. Hospital suggested me to use spirit which I used for few weeks but later I found Betadine solution the best. It will prevent any infection in navel and also navel will heal n close faster. Take care that nothing else goes in navel. Stay away from it during massage, ubtan/ loi time. Hope it helps.
Answer: Baby's cord falls between 9th to 15th day,u can bathe him but be very careful with the cord,and pat it dry with a very soft cloth without applying pressure.also make sure that the diaper is below the navel as there are chances that the diaper may hurt the baby.
