postpartum question

I had my little boy 8 days ago and my belly button is still an outtie. When will it look normal again? I can't remember when it went back to normal with my first ds, as it has been 9 yrs since I had him and he was a c-section baby and ds #2 was a vbac.

It took mine a week to slowly go in and about 2-3 weeks to be totally back in again. It'll go in eventually :)

It took about 5-6mos for mine to return to 'normal' color and texture.  But for it to sink back in was around 2mos (I think).  But everyone is different.  It may depend on how you loose the water and weight.  Congrats on your newest LO!

Mine went back to normal pretty quickly but I would think it's normal for it to take a little bit.
