Brief Answer:
Some bleeding is normal

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It is normal to have some bleeding from the umbilical cord stump. It will dry out by itself. There is no need to worry. Nothing needs to be done for this.

You can go for routine pediatric visit.

Hope this answers your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
