Umbilical Cord
Has your baby's umbilical cord fallen off yet? If yes how long did it take for it to fall off?

Christian fell off after about 2 weeks which was nice. My first childs was on for around 8 weeks. I thought the darn thing was never going to fall off.

Addie's fell off at 6 days. We didn't use any rubbing alcohol or anything and she took 2 herbal baths with me during that time.

Oh, I'm glad I read this! I was thinking it was taking forever and was starting to get worried. Dean still has his, and he turned two weeks today. They told me about a week at the hospital. With Meg and Marc they told me to do alcohol on it twice a day, but now they told me to do nothing with it. So I've been ignoring it. I can't smell it, but i'm not exactly sticking my nose close lol

She's 9 days old and its still there. Midwife said it can take awhile for some babies cause my first wasn't even a week.

Re: Umbilical Cord
Lol. I didn't put my nose close to his, you could smell just holding him in your arms. It was so bad and strong. So gross. Did not have the problem with Frankie.

Re: Umbilical Cord
It fell off last night woo hoo :D Now I dont have to be as paranoid putting her diaper on and picking her up and touching her tummy. IDK if that hurts them or not.

Re: Umbilical Cord
His fell off at 8 days, his older sister's fell off at 10 days. His fell off when the doctor was examining it at his first week check up.
