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

I never knew until that moment how badly it could hurt to lose something you never really had. - Missed Miscarriage at 10 weeks - 3/26

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.

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.
