My baby is 10 days today and her Umbilical cord hasn't fallen yet. In the hospital, the midwives ask us to use only moko methylated spirit only. Pls,

Please be patient, the umbilical cord will fall in due time. Some baby's cord take some time to fall. It may take up to 14 - 21 days in some cases...if still worried or there is sign of infection, kindly see a doctor for further evaluation and treatment
