Have they fallen off yet? How old is/was baby when it did?

Do you keep it for baby's book or dispose of it?



Kierson is just about twelve days old and cord is still intact. Well, I think it got caught on his diaper or clothes and ripped it a little. Its bleeding a tad bit and looks like it has a little ooze coming from it. I hope it falls off very soon.

Kaylee's fell off at about 8 days old - HOWEVER DS's cord didn't fall off all the way until 2 months - he lost it in pieces. No i didn't keep it - that's a trash thing for me.

We buried Pips and Zakks.

Old wives tale says that way they are kept "grounded" through their lives.

Wren's came off at 6 days, which had me a bit concerned, but the nurses/pedi said it was fine as long as it didn't have signs of an infection. We have kept the cord, but I think we'll bury it-I like the idea of keeping them "grounded!"

Logan's is sooo close to coming off. He's almost 3 weeks. I like the keeping them grounded idea so we'll probably bury it.
