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?
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.
❤ Big Thanks to Vicki, trishosaurus, & Shortcake for the great siggies of my kids! ❤

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.
