What a precious childhood memory. Every kid should keep one of those, mine is under my pillow along with my tonsils, wisdom teeth and my first crap.

Yeah, lots of people save em for stem cells and what not...but I've never heard of parents letting their KIDS hang on to them. Thats just...creepy.

Um the parents don't keep the umbilical cord for stem cells. If they want to keep the stem cells they pick a cord-blood bank before the baby is born and order a kit to collect the cord-blood. A doctor collects the cord-blood after the baby is born and normally before the placenta comes out with a syringe. They then send the blood to the blood bank where it is frozen until needed. I do think that it's disgusting that the parents kept that BLEH! I mean when my nephews were born theirs just

Actually yeah you're right, the parents who wind up keeping it do it more for sentimental reasons. Sorry, I'm going on VERY little sleep here. But yeah I dunno, I'm all for sentiment but again, if you're keeping something for sentimental value, WHY let a little kid hang on to it?!

I know a family with four kids and all four kids' umbilical cords are in ziplocs in their freezer in case they ever need a stem cell transplant. I mean, if it was my kid, I'd put it in a stem cell/blood bank for safe-keeping; not the place where I also keep my frozen vegetables and chicken fingers...

haha. just imagine if someone comes for dinner, and goes to the freezer to help out. "you said you wanted the frozen veggies? okay hang on a--what the hell is this?"

I have both my daughters' stuck in their baby books. I think people are thinking they're enormous - they're actually only about 2 cm long, really tiny.

I never really had the urge to keep that when I had my daughter haha. I kept the little card from her bassinet at the hospital with all her info and our hospital bracelets but not that. It didn't help that when hers fell off, it went into her poopy diaper while I was changing her.
