  • i was not going to. mom my saved mine and i thought it was weird. when my oldest daughters fell off i threw it away and my husband was like "awww your going to throw that away?! that is what connected you together for 9 months." then i felt guilty and saved it. so yes i saved both my girls.

  • No. My son's fell off when my mom changed his diaper, not like I would've kept it. My pediatrician took off my daughter's when she was 5 weeks old, and I had her throw it away.

  • eew no. it fell off when hubby was changing a diaper, he held it up and asked me if I wanted it for her scrapbook. I laughed and put it in her diaper pail. some things were not meant to be saved.

  • Gross, no. That's not something they are going to cherish, lol. I did save a hunk of hair from their first haircuts though.
