How should I care for my newborn’s umbilical cord?
Ah.. great question for a first time parent!
Honestly.. it as pretty easy for us.. we kept the area completely dry, meaning no complete tub bath until it fell off, which took about 10 days or maybe a few more. We made sure to keep it clean, dry and were really careful when changing his diaper as to not bump or irritate it.. then one day - wa la! I went to change his diaper and saw it was gone... in the back of his onesie.. ha!
Any other instances of umbilical cord care, Mamas?
