If the navel is not taken care of properly, bacteria can grow and multiply, causing neonatal umbilitis.
For this reason, many parents are usually afraid to bathe a newborn baby and sterilize the baby’s navel.

During disinfection, you can use your left index finger and thumb to open the muscles around the navel to expose the umbilical hole. Use a small cotton swab dipped in disinfectant to cross the circle from the inside to disinfect the baby. Pay attention to clean the secretions and blood.Wait for dirty things.
This eliminates the poison for 10 days, and if the infection does not occur, the disinfection can be stopped.
Taking a bath is a happy thing for your baby. Don’t be afraid that water is not good for your baby’s belly button.
After the umbilical cord is ligated, the blood vessels outside the umbilical cord have basically contracted and will not cause infection due to the entry of water.
