Pls how do you take care of a cord after it has falling off? Beside cleaning it with spirit.
Pour warm water when bathing... after bathing rub either Vaseline, Shea butter, or Mentholated balm for as long as 1yr old
Paediatricians used to recommend cleaning the base of the cord with rubbing Methylated spirit. However, most now recommend leaving the stump completely alone because Spirit is believed to irritate the skin and sometimes delays healing. Keep The Area Dry and Allow the cord to be exposed to air as often as possible
