  • When she was about two weeks old.'s a little freaky when it falls off. It's not all cute and pink and pretty like some might think. I was a little freaked out when it fell off LOL.

  • With a lotus birth it only take a couple days. When the cord gets cut, it can take weeks.

  • Around 2 or 2 1/2 weeks. I didn't even see it. It must have fallen off on the floor somewhere and ... GROSS ... I think a dog ate it!

  • 2 weeks old if it takes longer take him to the pediatrician and they put some stuff on it that helps it come off within the next day or so, just make sure u use those alcohol wipes n keep it clean

  • my daughter was 10 days old when it fell off and the skin below it was a fleshy pink color and there was a tiny drip of blood. The hospital told us not to use alcohol or anything on it because it would just preserve and basically pickle the unbilical cord. They said if it started to get fuzzies on it or anything then just getting dab it clean with a damp wash cloth.
