How did baby lose cord stump?

Did you find it in his/her clothes? Did you touch it and it fell off? We still have ours. I just wondered how you discovered it fell off. It's getting really dry and little pieces are coming off, I notice when u diaper change.

Re: How did baby lose cord stump?

  • I don't know.  One diaper change, it was just gone.  Never did find it.  Scary thought eh?  It didn't fall off in pieces - one change it was there.  The next change, it wasn't.
  • If I remember correctly, the cord clip just fell off in my hands when I tried to move it out of the way when doing a diaper change.  By that point, it was already rather dry and sort of "hanging by a thread" though.

  • I was cleaning around it with rubbing alcohol and DS was mad that I was messing with him so he was swatting his hand at me and he ended up knocking it off. By that point it was hanging by a thread. He didn't even flinch.

  • At 2 weeks exactly I found it in his onesie. It fell off while he was laying on my chest.

  • Just found it in his clothes when I was changing him into his PJs when he was 14 days old.  All of my kids lost it at 14 days old. With DS2, it started to lift off around 9-10 days old but was a little bit bloody underneath, so I was extra careful for the next few days and then it just fell off.

  • It fell off during a diaper change and landed on my leg. Not going to lie - I was grossed out. She was about 12 days old or so.

  • LO was 5 days old, during a diaper change he peed on himself so as I was cleaning him off, it came off.  I freaked a bit because I wasn't expecting it to come off so soon, but he was fine and pedi didn't worry when he saw it today.

    LO's just fell off while removing her onesie for a diaper change.  Some of it was still attached.  The ped put some stuff on it to make the rest of it fall off.

    It fell off when I put a diaper on.  Ours had one of those plastic clamps on it, the clamp came off and small pieces stayed on / fell off throughout the following week.

  • LO was sleeping on DH's chest, he picked her up, we noticed it was gone. DH sat up and it rolled out of her blanket on to the floor.

  • she kicked it off. clearly it was mostly ready to fall off, she just helped it along. it did get crusty and a scab formed, and she kicked that off too a couple days later. pedi said it looked good, so no worries.
