Bleed @belly 2weeks baby
My daughter is 2weeks old. She is getting 1-2 drops bleeding at belly button. Cord has fallen on 6 th day wen she was in NICU for one day due to yellow jaundice.. otherwise my baby was fine..now Paediatrician hav given her Vitamin-k injection saying it happens due to vitamin-k deficiency. 3days after giving injection to my 15 days old baby again I could notice few spots of blood to its dress. Why is this happening? Wats the reason for this.. is it anything to be worried? Wat r the solutions? Is there any ointment to be applied to belly button. Am really worried.

Advice you you just keep the local area dry and clean. If persistent discharge with granuloma, can plan for chemical cautery. Do consult paediatrician first. Also evaluation for bleeding disorders if bleed persists.
