5 month old duaghter we were in bath I noticed her belly button bleeding I can pull it back there seems to be an opening she seems to be fine no crying no fever

5: 5 months old is a little old to still be having problems with the belly-button. Most kids lose their umbilical cords a few weeks after they are born and the belly button heals within a few days after that. It could be an infection, injury, granuloma or something she was born with, but if her belly button is draining or bleeding, she should be seen by her doctor. ...Read more

Not even a week: A lot of times during laparoscopic Gyn surgery a uterine manipulator is placed to assist in visualization. This can cause some spotting. The camera is typically placed through an incision in your belly button which certainly would be sore. Contact your Gyn surgeon to confirm that your symptoms are expected based on the surgery performed. ...Read more
