Babies umbilical cord

What did you do to clean your babies umbilical cord after coming home? We used alcohol wipes, that's what our doctor told us to do. We would just gently wipe around and dab them. Did you or are you going to save them? We did(nasty I know) I have each of theirs in their babies box in a zip lock bag.

    We saved all of theirs also, but when we moved everything got misplaced and i think someone threw them away.

      We've saved ours too. We have used alcohol but once we went with a midwife she used a herbal yellow powder and the name of it is escaping....Goldenseal. It actually worked much better than alcohol and dried it much faster.
