There are many ways to take care of a newborn's umbilical cord but what is the right way to care for it without it getting infected. New mothers may not know the full care for the cord and only heard remedies from other mothers who had kids or from their family members.
Who could say they actually work and not affect the infant in the long run. It is important to know the medical way to care for the cord so the baby could prevent any blood clot or infection. When the baby is born, the cut of the umbilical cord matters because if it is cut in a short period of time then the extra blood will flow to the baby's circulation instead of being discarded with the cord and placenta.
