NOW CLOSED: Have you had a baby in the last 3 years? Please complete a short survey about cord care for Huggies® - you could win a £250 JL voucher

We have been asked by Huggies® to find out your views on and experiences with your newborn baby's umbilical cord.

Huggies® has launched a new feature on its Newborn size one nappies which will help parents to care for their little one's umbilical cord. Midwifery expert Nikki Khan says: "Cord care is often a surprise to new mums and something they perhaps had not considered until the arrival of their baby. Huggies® has launched a great innovation - it is such a simple change but will make a huge difference for new mums."

Huggies® would like to how know you coped with the cord, what advice you were given on caring for it, and any issues which arose.

Please take a few minutes to complete this survey. It is open to all Mumsnetters in the UK who have had a baby in the last three years.

Everyone who takes part will be entered into a prize draw where one winner will receive a £250 John Lewis voucher.

If you have had more than one baby, please think about your most recent baby when completing the survey, as Huggies® want to hear about your most recent experiences.

Thanks and good luck.

I'm not sure if DH's urge to mount the stump on a shield and hang it over the mantelpiece counts as a 'tradition' but I thought Huggies should be aware of it grin

NB this idea was firmly vetoed. The massive weirdo.

done. Although I thought they'd asked if we'd kept the cord rather than the clamp. Bleuurrgggh!

Done!

Done. Nappies on ds didn't reach the stump as he was so long, so not an issue.

I was wondering what other people were told as I was just told to leave it alone until it fell off, and it did around day 3 by which time I hadn't yet done a 'normal bathtime'.

Done.

DONE!

I filled in the survey just to point out that I used washable nappies which were cleverly designed to go around the cord. Doubt I'll be in line for the prize now, but it was fun anyway!

The clamps are cut off, then the cord stump (eurgh horrible word!) falls off later.

I have all my DC clamps, eldest DC is 14!!!!

Oh and pampers were doing the cord cut out bit once upon a time, as I remember having them for DC2 I think?
