What's the quickest way to dry it up peroxide or alcohol and do you put it on or around the stump

I got a disinfection spray that doesnt burn or sting when applied. I used abit everytime i changed the diaper. It fell off on day 9. I wouldnt rush to get it to fall off. It will come off eventualy so just be patient:)

Dr.'s say rubbing alcohol, but it is now preferred not to use anything because it can be irritating, and cause issues. Just leave it alone. It will dry up withing 1-2 weeks of birth.
