Melissa says, "The umbilical stump is really not that big of a deal. With my first baby, I was freaked out that it was some sort of a portal, so if there was an infection it would go right in. We would dangle the child over the sink and wash that way so we wouldn’t get it wet. I don’t know if anyone else goes through this — maybe it’s just me, maybe I’m nuts. It’s hard to tell a new mom to not worry. When my kids were born, I watched them breathe. It’s part of a mom’s job to worry."
