  1. Hello Dear,

    Thank you for writing to us at MediMetry.
    If baby is new born, the umbilical cord care is basically keeping it dry and nothing is to be applied. Usually it falls off by 2nd week. Even after fall you need not to apply any thing over the umbilicus. After it heals and get inverted and in older babies no specially cleansing is required. Routinely while bathing just was with soap and water and make it dry .

    Hope this answers your query. Feel free to write back with follow-up questions.
