It took twenty days to fall off? Isnt it usually faster than that?


ANSWER #2 of 3

I think it usually will take anywhere from a few days to 3 weeks. I wouldn't worry about it too much; 20 days is definitely normal! Some baby's cords take a bit longer to fall off. It might be worth it to talk to your doctor about it, though.
