my daughter lost her umbilical cord when she was 9 days old. but she is still losing the inner pieces. just make sure you clean it will alcohol to dry it up and keep it from getting infected.

Just use a Q-tip with some rubbing alcohol on it and put it around the outside of his belly button every time you change his/her diaper.

Williams fell off two days ago so he was 12 days old when it happened. We didnt realize it until we looked at him and why he was crying but there it was and he has been fine with the belly button area ever since.

My daughters umbilical cord fell off at 10 days. I always thought it was so gross that my mom saved mine in my baby book, but in the moment I decided to save hers too haha!

I think it's supossed to take between 1.5-2 weeks. I belive Raven's fell off around the 11th or 12th day. Just make sure you keep it wiped clean and don't let her diaper rub it too much!
