Photos: See How My Baby’s Umbilical Cord Dried Up

Birth and life with an newborn is pretty amazing. Little things change rapidly, so every hour or day there is something new to see.

One of those things is the umbilical cord. Once it’s been cut (if you’re going down that route and not having a lotus birth), it heals quite quickly but changes in colour. It’s also fascinating to see the little stump develop.

Apparently wherever you cut the cord won’t make a difference on what the belly button becomes – so you can’t make an inny or an outy!
