7 to 10 Days? Yeah Right!

I hate how the medical profession tells us that our babies will do certain things at certain ages. Then when we have a child who doesn't follow that time line we freak out.

They tell parents that a baby will lose his/her cord stump in 7 to 10 days. Well my friends, I am here to tell you that information is a bunch of b.s. Here is my little man at 3.5 weeks old, cord stump freshly off.

Jordan, on the other hand, decided to hold onto hers for 3.5 MONTHS.

I agree, it's all a bunch of hooey! I think doctors make up these guidelines just to keep us second-guessing ourselves...which leads to appointments booked in concern for our lo's health, in the end generating more income for said doctors. It's all a conspiracy, I tell you!
Both of my kiddos held on to their cord stumps for a few weeks, but 3.5 MONTHS?! That's gotta be a record!
