Belly Button???

How old was your LO when the cord stump fell off? I am waiting (not so patiently) to put my little guy in the cute outfits with onesies and of course to use his cloth (because only my lil' joeys have the cord dip and he's too tiny for that to work yet - it rubs on his cord stump)

Less than 3 days! Both of my kids lost them super fast. Claire was 4 days and micah was about 3.

Dp
anyway I think delaying the cord clamping might help it fall off quicker.

2 wks!! The Ped recommended swabbing the stump with alcohol to speed the process along! Once we started that, it fell off quickly! Also, using the alcohol kept the after-stump from looking all wet and gross!
