Umbilical Question?? Idk If I Hurt Her??

Ok so I was changing mackenzies diaper today and I think I caught her umbilical cord on it when I was taking it off and it stuck to it. It is now half off her belly and she started crying idk if I hurt her and I did that or if it was like that and I just saw it now? Underneeth it its kinda whitish idk how to describe but I really hope I didnt yank it off, from then on I am very carfull changing miss mack Smile, so if anyone knows what happens if it prematurly gets yanked half off or somthing just let me know what yall think. Also I think it should be coming off soon anyway sense its been 8 days the nurse at the hospital said around 10 days it falls off so idk just please help I feel bad I hope I didnt hurt her -ryan

Relax hon, I believe she'll be just fine, so long as you keep the area clean and bug free.
That spare bits gotta come off anyway so don't worry.
Just give her loadsa love and an extra kiss and she'll forget about and still love you totally Wink

It usually takes 2-3 weeks for it to come off. Josh's took 16 days. Make sure u use alcohol on it. I remember josh's hung half off for like a week, and it bugged me, I wished I could have just yanked it off. Lol. But im sure she is fine. It should fall off in about a week, give or take a few days. And josh's onsie pulled his off. It bled just a little, got stuck to the inside, and when I undressed him I noticed it wasnt there. It didnt hurt him and he didnt even know it was gone! Lol! And I still have it! Lmao!
