  • Anywhere between a week and 4 weeks, and since you're baby is probably bundled up due to the weather it might be on the longer side because it won't dry up as fast as a baby that's just wearing a diaper and tee shirt in the summer.

  • 3 of my 4 babies lost theirs on the 11th day. My preemie I didn't notice because of all the tubes going into her navel, probably around 2 weeks.

  • With my first son it was 5 weeks (I thought it was never going to fall off!) With my second baby it was less than a week!
