When did your LO's lose their cord stump?

Just wondering how old your LO was when their cord stump fell off? Markus lost his yesterday at 10 days old! Clara didn't lose hers until she was almost 3 weeks but I was having a lot of baths with her (I haven't with Markus since I had a csection and his has stayed more dry). I don't remember how old my boys were when theirs fell off.

Isaiah was 9 days, my older son was only 6 days and I can't remember with my girls but I know they all lost theirs before 2 weeks. I've always only done sponge baths until the cord falls off, though with my first daughter they still reccomended using alcohol and with DD2, DS1 and DS2 they did not...wish I could remember if there was a major difference. I don't recall hers falling off super early though

The hospital recommended using alcohol swabs- the ped recommended not. Flynn just lost his today (although I did use the swab last night and this morning because I could tell it was just hanging on by a tiny bit). So... 10 days?

These two both lost theirs @ approx. 2 weeks in their sleepers. DD1 lost hers @ 1 week but it was my fault (It came off when I was changing her).

We are going on day 18 and his is still hanging on. I am thinking it will be coming off in a day or two. My DS' came off after 9 days.
