What Should a Baby's Belly Button Look like after the Umbilical Stump Falls off?

A baby's bellybutton might poke out a little, be a little red, still have some blue/purple dye on it, and may look a little funny for up to two weeks after the umbilical cord falls off. If you notice any oozing of green or yellow pus, or you see any bloody discharge, you should consult a physician as soon as possible.
