    Hi this may sound odd but what did you do with your baby's cord stump once it fell of? Did you bin it or keep it? Our babys has just fell of but I don't really want to throw it but keeping it sounds gross.

    I put my two's in a small plastic ziplock bag and kept them but I have no idea where they ended up as I've moved twice since. They're either in a keepsake box in the loft or they got left at my ex's house, or they were thrown out at some point. No idea which. LOL

    Mine went in the bin. Never thought about it with my first and then with my second it absolutely stunk (had it checked out and all normal!) so I wasn't going to keep that!

    Yes I thought of doing that. The cord will go nasty so I could just keep the clip. X

    We have the cord. In its clip and it's in like a small jar in his baby things in the loft.

    I've never looked at it since its been in there so god knows what's left of it.

    I kept the clip and threw the stump away. It doesnt look to great when it fell off. Will be throwing my next babies away too. Not sure they will really want to see it?

    I kept my babies' hospital ID bracelets too.

    This time I'm not planning on having the baby in hospital (home birth) and I'm also hoping to lotus birth so may not have a cord stump either. Instead I've got a few cord ties (just in case) and one has a heart at the end and I'm going to use it as a bracelet on the baby (rather than as a cord tie) so then when they outgrow it that will be my keep-sake.
    There's also a place near me where you can paint pottery and they have a heart shaped ceramic plaque and whilst the baby is still tiny I'm going to go and write the baby's name, DOB, & birth weight and then a do a hand or foot print on it.
