When I took my daughter for her 2 week checkup (actually at 15 days) her cord still hadn't fallen off. The doctor washed around it and used some sort of device to remove it. It looked painful to me, but the baby didn't budge. Actually stayed asleep during it.

Now, the rest of my kids cords came off within 10 days.

So, it just varies. They are all different.

It took my baby's to fall off about a week and a half. If you clean it more frequent it'll fall off sooner than that. It all depends on you.

With my boys their cords fell of at around 10 days. I cleaned the cord with the alcohol wipes at every diaper change.

Both my girls came off around a week and a half if I remember correctly. That was a long time ago.

I love my 3 girls and little boy:

Mom to Jessica - 19 yrs old, Amber - 18 yrs old, Sebastian - 2 months
