There was a tiny amount of blood on her nappy at each change until the cord fell off, which was on day 11 for us. It was because the cord had partially separated at the bottom but still attached at the top. Think it started bleeding on day 5 or 6.
Then her stump didn't heal well until she was 7 weeks and there was a small amount of dark brown blood and mucky gunk on her bodysuits until then. Gross!
I just cleaned the raw bit with salt water at each nappy change and left it to dry before covering it up again.
My LOs belly button bled before the chord fell off too. And there were tiny drops of blood on his diapers after it fell off, too. His fell off at 17 days. If the doctor says its fine, then try not to worry
My lo's cord fell off on day 7... It bled a little a few days before (you could see if on his nappy) and on the morning it fell off there was also a bit of green looking gunk. It was all fine though and healed more or less a few days after it fell off! It sounds normal just try to keep it dry and clean :-) xx
