Is it ok for the umbilical cord to be falling off this soon? For some reason i thought it took about 3 weeks or so. It looks good, and it's not bleeding, or infected. Just coming off. It's hanging there right now by a little string. She'll be a week old tomorrow.

Ava's took forever to fall off. We kept Ava. If you bury it under a rose bush your baby will have rosey cheeks. We didn't get around to burying it yet.
