Whose has fallen off? When did it fall off?

Michaela's seems to be taking longer than Daniel's did. I can see it drying out around the stump and it gradually coming away. I'm itching to give her a bath and wish it would fall off already - the clip gets in the way of everything!!

For those with fallen off stumps, did it reveal an innie or an outie?

Jackson's fell off at two weeks, but only because it snagged. It didn't lose everything until about 3 weeks.

I think it was about 10 days, but it still had the goo for a bit afterwards. He now has a super cute innie!

It went day 8. But inside looked a bit raw and icky. I went to doc thinking it was infected. But it was a mild granuloma. Doc silver nitrated it and it's been good as new. It's an innie. 1st dd seemed to be an outie but it became an innie within a month or 2.

A good chunk came off the day we came home from the hospital. Then more came off around week 2, however, it was still gooey so it scabbed up again. Then that came off another week or so after that. It appears to be half in half out. So my guess is that it will end up as an innie.

Noah's fell off at 12 days and left a gross green/yellow goo - i was really worried as i was expecting it to go hard/dry and fall off but turn out that was normal. He now has a perfect little innie

It took 8 days. Like our other kids, she has a half innie/half outie.
We did not use alcohol to dry it up; we let it happen naturally.

Michaela's finally fell off today. There's still a bit of stump left in the belly button but the midwife said that might happen and is normal. I'm just glad the clip has gone, it got in the way of everything! And it looks healthy enough, no goo. It looks like it will definitely be an outie.
