RE: Umbilical cord stumps--can they come off too soon?
Madeline's came off too early too. It was a little too long and when she would kick her legs it would knock the stump against her diaper. The ped noticed it coming off at her one week check up and applied something to it to help it dry out quicker. She then knocked it off completely and the ped had us bring her in and he put more of the stuff on it.
So, I wouldn't worry but I would call the ped and have them check it out to make sure that it's not too raw.
