Did you save your baby's umbilical cord stump?
I know some people who save their baby's umbilical cord stump. I never saved it because I was grossed out by that. I save the clamp and many other little keepsakes.
Did you save the umbilical cord clamp? Do you know anyone who did?
Noper! Monroe didn't even come home with the clamp.. his was about as clean and cut & dry as I had ever saw one before.. but I am pretty sure my best friend kept her kiddos... I think even the stumps.. ah!
I never got to keep the clamp, it was off by the time we came home, or probably would have kept it. I did keep the stump because it's a tradition in my family. My mom kept all of ours and so did my sisters. But its in a zip lock baggie. I might change my mind later on down the road, but for now its put up.
