hii eshita ... it's not necessary to fall cord in 7 days...it might be take more time... don't let it wet.. always keep dry n clean...

Radha priya

let the cord dry itself n it will fall... dnt do anything... keep it dry

it takes time for some children it will fall in a week for some it wont for my son it took 15 days n daughter just 5 days just take care while giving a bath ok see that more water wont enter that area or it will lead to infection so

Eshita Shah no hurry dear it comes out itself in time....no time frame fixed as every baby is unique.... it doesn't give any harm...let it be natural just keep lil precautions while changing diapers or clothes, bathing...it should be dry... your hospital must have given you alcohol swabs for cleaning in case it gets wet....with baby boy it becomes lil difficult as sometime baby pees upward but in baby girl piece of cake 😍.....you have to be lil careful​ while changing his diaper as he can mess with it a Lil....
