I have 11 days old baby girl and there are more than normal discharge from her belly button. No redness around the belly button and no fever. Any risk?

In brief: Belly Button

A small amount of discharge around the belly button or umbilical stump is normal But if there is a significant amount or any redness, it should be looked at.
Could be an early infection.
