When does the umbilical cord typically fall off a normal term infant?
a. two days
b. two weeks
c. one month
d. two months
two weeks. When your infant is around two weeks old after birth, the umbilical stump often dries up and comes out. Some kids lose their stump as early as 7 days and as late as 21 days, thus two weeks isn’t an exact timeframe.
